The daring Diavolo dancers to entertain Louisville's audience


Diavolo Artistic Director Jacques Heim visits Fox in the Morning with his Diavolo dance company.  We get a sneak peek into the performance that will be going on this weekend at the Kentucky Center!


Friday, Oct. 1

1:00pm & 8:00pm

Kentucky Center in Whitney Hall

Single tickets are $38, $32 and $23.

Diavolo was founded in 1992 in Los Angeles by Jacques Heim to create large-scale interdisciplinary performances which examine the funny and frightening ways individuals interact with their environment.

The company is comprised of dancers, gymnasts and actors who create performances collaboratively under the guidance of Heim.

The sets created are outrageous and surrealistic and form an intrinsic part of each piece of work. Everyday items such as doors, chairs and stairways provide the back-drop for dramatic movement - leaping, flying, twirling - that creates metaphors for the challenge of relationships, the absurdities of life and the struggle to maintain our humanity in an increasingly technological world.

After seeing their first Los Angeles show, Los Angeles Times dance critic Lewis Segal wrote of Heim that the performance "establishes him as a creative force in the community, someone with both a compelling vision and the ability to inspire others to uncompromising performances."

For tickets call The Kentucky Center Box Office at 584-7777, toll free at (800) 775-7777 or (502) 562-0730 (TTY), or visit
