Fluid Movements

Alonzo King LINES Ballet celebrates its 30th year as a leading light in contemporary ballet in its spring season. In a new collaborative work, King sets his lapidary choreog-raphy to music by Grammy-award winning double bassist and composer Edgar Meyer, performed before an illuminated wall of water created by Academy Award-winning fog and water specialist Jim Doyle. The program will also include excerpts of LINES Ballet repertoire from the past three decades, including King’s acclaimed Ocean (1994). King refers to his pieces as “thought-structures”; his 12 extraordinary dancers use their long-limbed virtuosity to embody works of cerebral abstraction that tran-scend the classical idiom. A special gala will be held April 20; post- and pre-performance talks with King and Meyer will be held April 21 and 24, respectively.
April 19-21; April 24-28, 2013
