San Francisco, California
Alonzo King LINES Ballet returns to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater with a stunning world premiere. Breaking the mold of what ballet can be, King’s provocative new work combines sophisticated modernist choreography with the physical elegance of the LINES Ballet dancers to stunning effect. The Spring Season also features a trilogy of iconic sections from King’s body of work. The retrospective includes a mesmerizing quintet from The Radius of Convergence set to music of jazz legend Pharoah Sanders and bassist Edgar Meyer, and excerpts from the critically acclaimed Klang and Koto.
