SPIN! The Rebirth of Diabolo

A glorious art form with breath-taking acrobatics, dance and classical music.

Toronto, Ontario – Only days after The Hummingbird Centre announced their 2006/2007 season, AsianWinds adds a new show to entertain Toronto audiences this summer! SPIN! The Rebirth of Diabolo will be at The Hummingbird Centre for two shows only this July.

SPIN! The Rebirth of Diabolo is more than just a game.  Direct from Taiwan, this exciting company brings their passion for fun to a whole new level.  They take their expertise in the ancient game diabolo, add grace through dance and classical music, wrap it in an exciting theatrical extravaganza and spin an evening to delight the whole family.

The diabolo is a toy that evolved from the yo-yo over 4,000 years ago in China, where it was called “hollow bamboo” and gained popularity in the 19th century among aristocrats.  It has been called “the devil on two sticks,” the diabolo is a juggling prop consisting of a spool which is whirled and tossed on a string tied to two sticks held one in each hand.
