Diavolo Dance Theater

Dancers train for years to achieve the strength, balance and presence they need to perform for artistic directors, ballet masters, choreographers and audiences. To join the Diavolo Dance Theater, it may help to add in theater, gymnastics or a study in physics. True to its artistic statement, Diavolo is redefining dance each time it launches a dancer through the air across large-scale, architecturally surreal apparatuses. Founded by Artistic Director Jacques Heim in 1992, Diavolo ends its 2011-12 North American tour May 19 at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s Chapman Music Hall. Choregus Productions welcomes the troupe in a trio of pieces joining the enigmatic nature of humanity in a technologically-enhanced world with a playful quality and curiosity that makes Diavolo a stand-out ensemble the world over. www.choregus.org
