Widely acclaimed modern dance ensemble Diavolo will perform at the Kentucky Center on Friday. If the press clippings bear out, it will be a performance to remember. Diavolo was founded in 1992 by choreographer Jacques Heim, who had the vision of creating large-scale interdisciplinary performances that examined — with humor and emotion — the ways humans interact with their environment. The company is now a collection of dancers, gymnasts and actors who utilize elaborate, surrealistic sets to tell stories with motion and interaction. Everyday items like chairs and stairways are catalysts for dramatic leaping, flying and twirling that become metaphors for the absurdities of life and the struggle to maintain our humanity in a modern world based on technology. (Diavolo’s performance is part of the IdeaFestival. —Kevin Gibson
