Fall Home Season

November 14-23, 2014

World Premiere + Rasa with Zakir Hussain live

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater

TICKETS ON SALE BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 25

Like an arrow poised for flight, an undercurrent of restless agitation pervades Alonzo King’s latest work set to three Shostakovich string quartets. The music wavers in a state of crystalline suspension, pushing the dancers’ tensile strength to the limit as they revel in the space between harmony and discord, in the long arc before an earthbound fall.

This season also sees the return of Rasa, a deeply romantic and shimmering piece set to an original score by tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain. In Rasa, King’s dancers soar to new heights, buoyed by live accompaniment from Zakir Hussain and Indian classical violinist Kala Ramnath. At the heart of the music and the dance, there is a sense of openness, of arising in joy, of ascending beyond the structures and being held there, aloft.

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

"It is an honor to work with Alonzo. His incredible understanding of the nuances of music make him a composer's choreographer. It is stunning to watch him print the flow of melody and rhythm on his dancers. I have rarely seen sounds coming alive with such clarity." Zakir Hussain
