2018 Featured Guest Dance Company: DIAVOLO

Every spring since 1989, the Fort Wayne Dance Collective brings a guest dance company to Fort Wayne to inspire, educate, enhance the community, and of course entertain. FWDC has also hosted three Indiana Dance Festivals featuring a guest artist performance, an Indiana Dancers Showcase performance, and three days of workshops.

What we do on stage is like a live abstract painting. There is no narrative, but strong themes pervade the work such as human struggle, fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, destination, faith, and love.
– Jacques Heim, Artistic Director

Fort Wayne Dance Collective is thrilled to announce DIAVOLO as the 2018 guest dance company! DIAVOLO, Architecture in Motion® , explores the relation and interaction between the human body and its architectural environment to understand how we are being affected not only socially, but physically and emotionally. DIAVOLO furthers the transformative style of Architecture in Motion by providing dance performances, training, and community programs for all. Founded in 1992 by French-born choreographer and visionary Jacques Heim, DIAVOLO is a cultural pillar of the Los Angeles community and has performed for hundreds of thousands of concertgoers worldwide as well as millions more on television.

DIAVOLO will be leading master classes and workshops on Friday, February 2nd, which will engage the social service sites and community centers that Fort Wayne Dance Collective serves through its Dance in Education, Dance for Disabilities and Dance for Community programs.

DIAVOLO will then perform a dynamic, jaw-dropping live performance on the Arts United Center Stage at 7:30pm on February 3rd , 2018.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, which is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts with additional contributions from the Indiana Arts Commission. Fort Wayne Dance Collective is a principal partner of Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne. This presentation is made possible by Lincoln Financial Foundation, Arts United, and other generous funders.
