Like an arrow poised for flight, Alonzo King’s latest work set to four Shostakovich string quartets is resolute and sharply charged. Tumultuous forces of music and movement coalesce in crystalline suspension; the dancers revel on the brink of disorder, in explosivity contained and finely calibrated.

The fall season also heralds the return of Rasa, accompanied live by tabla master Zakir Hussain and classical Indian violinist Maestro Kala Ramnath. Rich and incandescent, Rasa unfurls from sun-warmed earth. Borne aloft by cascading percussive rhythms, the dancers’ limbs blur in abandon; a searing, quicksilver beat marks their euphoric ascent to the sublime.

Rasa is King’s most joyous and transporting collaboration. -- Rachel Howard
