Diavolo incorporated beautiful and seemingly dangerous moves and with a giant rocking structure for a stunning performance on America’s Got Talent. In a jaw-dropping performance atop a wooden arc, several male and female dancers dressed in white leaped and flipped from the structure. A rhythmic rendition of “What A Wonderful World” played while the audience gasped and applauded.
The Diavolo Institute Artistic Director, Jacques Heim, developed the Diavolo dance form in 1992, naming it after the Spanish word for “day” and Latin for “I fly.” Based in Los Angeles, the dance company is recognized as a “cultural treasure.” The website explains that Diavolo’s mission is to “further the transformative style of Architecture in Motion… and 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.”
During the audition, the troupe performed on what they refer to as “The Boat” — a half-circle, hollow structure that rocks back and forth. For their AGT audition, the white-clad male and female dancers of Diavolo perform to a modern take of the classic song “What A Wonderful World.” All four judges — Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel — give them a standing ovation.
