Premieres Fluid Infinities,the Final Installment in a Trilogy of
Commissions from the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Music by Glass – Dance

Diavolo Dance Theater is an architectural movement company that uses
abstract andrecognized structures to explore the relationship between
danger of our environment and the fragility of the human body. Diavolo is a
fusion of many different movement vocabularies such as everyday movement,
ballet,contemporary, acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts, and hip hop.
Under theguidance of Artistic Director Jacques Heim, the company premieres
a major newpiece entitled Fluid Infinities, the finalinstallment in L’
Espace du Temps, a trilogy ofcommissions from the Los Angeles Philharmonic
at the Hollywood Bowl onThursday, September 5, 2013, 8 pm. The program
“Music by Glass – Dance byDiavolo,” features the Los Angeles Philharmonic
Orchestra conducted by BramwellTovey performing Symphony No. 3 composed by
Philip Glass. Known for itsinventive physical structures and patterned
acrobatics, Diavolo is the perfectmatch for the phase-shifting energies of
Glass’ composition.

Fluid Infinities is the finalinstallment in L’Espace du Temps, a trilogy
ofcommissions from the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The piece is set on an
abstractdome-shaped structure on which the dancers explore the metaphors
of infinitespace, continuous movement, and the voyage into the unknown
future. The dome’sorganic patterns evoke the craters of Mars, a honeycomb
of bees, a shiftingbrain, or an undiscovered starship.

Forthe first two installments of Diavolo’s collaboration with the Los
AngelesPhilharmonic, Foreign Bodies and Fearful Symmetries, Heim’s
originalinspiration came from a cube. René Descartes, the French
mathematician andphilosopher, believed that the universe was born from
geometric components. Foreign Bodies starts and ends as a cube, as does
the cycleof life. Fearful Symmetries starts as a cube and ends on a clear
stagewith the dancers looking into the future.

Fluid Infinities, thefinal installment in this trilogy, will represent the
future they are lookinginto. “This future is an alternate reality where
life continues in a new anddifferent form, so foreign yet so familiar,”
says Heim on this new creativevision. “Foreign because it is difficult to
see beyond our limited perceptions,familiar because the greatest mysteries
in life can only be explored by lookinginside ourselves.”

Thestructure created for Fluid Infinitiesis a quarter sphere, a single
piece of curving fiberglass with an organic patternof openings across the
face. This partial dome sits on a mirrored floor. “Asthe dome moves and
shifts, the audience will experience dramatic changes ofperspective,” says
Heim about the new work. “Together with reflections from thefloor, the
movements will evoke dualities such as internal and external, lightand
dark, inside and outside, life and death.”
