DIAVOLO | Architecture in Motion® uses dance to explore the relationship between the human body and its architectural environment. Artistic Director Jacques Heim steers DIAVOLO’s diverse team of dancers, designers, choreographers and engineers to create visceral and awe-inspiring works that reveal how we are affected emotionally, physically and socially by the spaces we inhabit. This master class combines many components of performance skills: Ballet, Modern, Acrobatics, Martial Arts, Gymnastics, Theatrical Presence, Partnering, Improvisation, Composition, and their signature style of movement called Architecture in Motion® (the integration of structure and object into movement). Trust and teamwork exercises throughout the class challenge participants to engage dance in new and interesting ways.

Dancers should come with athletic shoes, pants and knee pads.

DIAVOLO will perform “L.O.S.T. Losing One’s Self Temporarily” as part of Ordway’s Music & Movements Series on Wed, Oct 25, 7:30pm at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.  For tickets, call 651.224.4222 | TTY 651.282.3100 or visit
