Seen by over 95 million people as one of the top 10 finalists on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Diavolo pushes the boundaries of dance and theater, blending modern and traditional dance with gymnastics, acrobatics, and aerial stunts. With bodies leaping, flying, and twirling across eye-popping, surrealistic sets, the daredevils of Diavolo present a performance that is original, awe-inspiring, and—sometimes—just a little bit dangerous.
VOYAGE is Diavolo’s newest adventure, inspired by travels in space and the 50th Anniversary of the first Moon Landing. A young woman dreams of traveling distances only astronauts can, escaping from the ordinary world into a surreal landscape of infinite possibilities. Gravity-defying bodies join her on a large wheel structure that rolls along the stage and on the journey in a universe that is alive with kinetic energy, fantastical whimsy, and surprising transformation.
TRAJECTOIRE is a signature Diavolo work that takes the audience on a visceral and emotional journey through the ebb and flow of the human experience. Watch as performers jump on and off a "Trajectoire" which is a 3,000 pound boat made of wood, aluminum, and steel that continuously rocks back and forth. Watch the performers struggle to find their balance on a voyage of destiny and destination in a daring display that shows the transcendence of the human soul against all odds.
