Diavolo Dance Theater, the Los Angeles based dance company led by artistic director Jacques Heim, will have a residency with Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center as part of the 2011-2012 season, to create “Transit Space,” a new work inspired by skateboard culture — a sport and an art form invented in Southern California in the 1950s.
The Diavolo Residency is a unique co-commission for the Music Center in partnership with The Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State and is part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, an initiative of the Getty in collaboration with more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California.
