Architecture reinvented

September 10, 2014


Most people don’t usually associate architecture with dance, but sometimes they meet head-on—and the result can be dramatic. Such is the case with the Kravis Center’s upcoming show “Diavolo—Architecture in Motion,” which will be held on November 7 at 8:00 pm. The Diavolo dancers redefine their art by using architectural elements as focal points, so they can confront, challenge and manipulate them to express the human condition. For instance, the dancers use stairs, arches, blocks and oversize peg boards as props to express fear, chaos, trust, love and salvation. There is no dialogue, only music and dancing—a weird sort of fusion between ballet, gymnastics, marital arts, cheerleading and hip-hop. Critics have called the show “truly spectacular” and “awe-inspiring.” It’s definitely one of a kind and not to be missed. To buy tickets, go to www.kravis.org or call the Kravis Center box office at 561-832-7469.
