About This Event

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 that has become the hallmark of this truly original Los Angeles-based company throughout its rich 25-year history.

A full evening experience in two parts, L.O.S.T. features DIAVOLO’s newest works – Passengers (2016) and Cubicle (2015) – and boldly tackles the essence of what both divides and unites us.


On and around a giant morphing staircase with multiple doors, passageways and shifting surfaces, the dancers reckon with themes of journey and transition and the tenuous balance we attempt to strike each day as both indomitable drivers and unwitting passengers.


Within a system of heavy wooden boxes, Cubicle explores the human condition under cramped and monotonous workday reality, exposing an underlying counterbalance of freedom and anarchy.
