Fall Home Season

November 14-23, 2014

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater

San Francisco, California

TICKETS ON SALE BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 25

Alonzo King LINES Ballet returns to YBCA with 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.

This season also sees the world premiere of a striking new ballet by King set to a selection of string quartets by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich.

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