DIAVOLO | Architecture in Motion
Seen by over 95 million people as a Top 10 Finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, DIAVOLO shatters boundaries and soars beyond the grasps of gravity. Led by the inventive genius of Artistic Director Jacques Heim and his fearless, athletic daredevils, the Los Angeles based company continues to push a new edge of performance. With a unique style that encompasses dance, acrobatics, and gymnastics, DIAVOLO explores the relationship between the human body and its surrounding architectural environment.
Through the DIAVOLO Institute, DIAVOLO's Veterans Project is a multi-week residency that is equal parts community, creativity, and discovery and is one of the most ambitious and humbling undertakings in DIAVOLO’s 25 year history. This program gives it’s veteran participants new victories in their post-service lives and begins to truly restore the core inner strengths of hope, optimism, self-belief and resiliency that had diminished during their difficult transition back into civilian life.
