Part I: Passengers

Part II: The Veterans Project: Phase 2 - A Long Journey Home

With high-flying energy, Diavolo redefines the boundaries of gravity and creates unanticipated visual wonders. Diavolo’s work takes movement and athletics and creates surreal tableaux on a grand scale.

Passengers is a mind trip. It is a piece about people caught in the wild loop of their shifting states of mind. Their unrelenting search for identity and self is a powerful reminder that we are merely Passengers on this vehicle called Life.

Inspired by Sebastian Junger’s novel, Tribe, and the vital stories of the veterans in our own community, The Veteran’s Project is a four-month workshop that uses movement as medicine to help heal and connect our American heroes. The program culminates in a presentation that reflects on themes such as inner strength, renewal, resilience and the meaning of Home.
