Description: Trajectoire, Transit Space

Dance for the entire family. Company members are not just dancers, but gymnasts, actors, athletes and above all, teammates. With a reputation for breathtaking movement on surrealistic structures, Diavolo explores the challenges of
relationships, the absurdities of life and the struggle to maintain our humanity. Diavolo brings to Tucson two of its signature works. Trajectoire takes place on a huge rocking galleon which sometimes sends its dancers flying through the air. Transit Space looks at skateboard culture. It has an infectious rock soundtrack and a hip, contemporary vibe, thanks to its street-clothes costumes and the loose way the dancers hang about the stage.

“Trajectoire is vintage Diavolo, a quick-paced and astonishing feat of strength and fearlessness…Defying gravity doesn’t just look easy. It feels like the human spirit, ever enduring.” -Los Angeles Times
