My mother gifted Luke and me with tickets to the civic center’s dance series and last night was the first of three.

Diavolo Dance Theater is an internationally renowned modern acrobatic dance company. Diavolo company members are dancers, gymnasts, actors, athletes and, above all, teammates. Under the guidance of Artistic Director Jacques Heim, the Company has developed a reputation for stunning, innovative movement on oversized surrealistic sets and everyday structures. Through working together, Diavolo dancers explore the challenges of relationships, the absurdities of life, and the struggles to maintain our humanity.”

I felt anxious as I watched these dancers fling themselves throughout the space, blindly falling into eachother’s arms, timing every movement just right. The trust they had in one another was incredible and i kept thinking of their practices and mishaps. eep. but it was amazing! humorous, dark and beautiful. I had never seen anything like it!

Thanks mom!!
