Celebrated Alonzo King LINES Ballet returns to enrapture audiences with works of luminous beauty. Collaborating with internationally acclaimed composers, musicians and artists – from double bassist Edgar Meyer to percussionist Mickey Hart to the Shaolin Monks – King creates award-winning contemporary ballet that draws on deeply rooted cultural traditions, imbuing a classical form with new expressive potential. His redoubtable choreography, brought to life by the extraordinary LINES dancers, evokes a profound sense of shared humanity.
