“A company of daredevil dancers leaping and cavorting.” — Los Angeles Times
The gymnasts and dancers of Diavolo evoke playfulness in all they do as they manipulate, tumble, climb, and catapult with ease from oversize sets and props, combining skill and imagery with silliness, trickery, and effortless movement. The props are as interesting as the dances themselves. Think giant skateboard ramps and 10-foot metal rings. While at Laxson Auditorium, they will be performing Transit Space. A Diavolo performance is always entertaining — in a BIG way!
