Zakir Hussain

Premiered

Two masters of rhythm, vibration and transformation unite for a special world premiere collaboration in honor of LINES Ballet’s 35th Anniversary Season. Zakir Hussain is a classical tabla virtuoso from India widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement. His complex rhythmic systems naturally partner with King’s choreography to celebrate the long-standing continuity between transcendental Eastern thinking and Western ballet’s classical forms and techniques.
