    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. Meticulously designed bespoke architectural structures serve as the central inspiration for each work, activated by the stylistically varied and intensely physical choreography which has become the hallmark of this truly original company throughout its rich 25 year history. Through The DIAVOLO Institute the company also provides educational and outreach opportunities to people of all ages and abilities while touring internationally and at home in Los Angeles, sharing the pioneering art form and the power of dance as a means of social impact.

    L.O.S.T. [Losing One’s Self Temporarily]

    Throughout the course of our human experience, we teeter between vulnerability and control, losing and reshaping ourselves as we traverse though our daily lives and work. A full evening experience in two parts, L.O.S.T. features Diavolo’s newest works – “Passengers” and “Cubicle” – and boldly tackles the essence of what both divides and unites us.
