Spring Farewell 

Comments

Alonzo King LINES Ballet, known for intricate choreography executed by elegant dancers of supernaturally elongated proportions, presents its "Spring Season." The company debuts an untitled premiere by its celebrated founder and choreographer King to music by contemporary composers John Oswald, Michael Jon Fink, and Peter Garland. The season marks a turning point, with three longtime LINES dancers, Princess Grace award-winning Meredith Webster, former Dance Theater of Harlem principal Caroline Rocher, and LINES ballet training program alumnus David Harvey bidding farewell to the company. The evening also features The Radius of Convergence from 2008, with music by Grammy Award-winning jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders and bassist Edgar Meyer, excerpts from King's 1996 work Klang, set to music by Miguel Frasconi, and excerpts from the 2002 work Koto, with music by Miya Masaoka.
