Writing Ground

Premiered October 2013

Commissioned in 2010 by Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, King’s masterful Writing Ground draws inspiration from poems by award-winning author Colum McCann. An emotionally searing and lyrical work, set to a collection of sacred early music from the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, Writing Ground challenges the Company to explore new physical territory. Writing Ground “illustrates the power of Alonzo King’s story-telling at its height” (Huffington Post).

Writing Ground was made possible, in part, by the Lisa and John Pritzker Family Fund.
