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. (2016)  Photos by George Simian



DIAVOLO’s newest piece, Passengers, created in 2016 to be part of a two-part piece entitled L.O.S.T. (Losing One’s Self Temporarily) which explores  human experience, as we teeter between vulnerability and control, losing and reshaping ourselves as we traverse through our daily lives and work. A full evening experience in 2 parts, L.O.S.T. features DIAVOLO’s newest works- “Passengers” and “Cubicle” – and boldly tackles the essence of what both divides and unites us.
