For its Fall Season, Alonzo King LINES Ballet brings Writing Ground home for its San Francisco premiere. Commissioned in 2010 by famed Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo to inaugurate the Centenary of The Ballets Russes, King’s masterful Writing Ground draws inspiration from a libretto by award-winning author, Colum McCann, who collaborated on the piece. Deeply evocative and emotionally intimate, Writing Ground pushes the LINES dancers to the point of defiant exhaustion. Buoyed by sacred choral odes and a range of rich instrumentals, the dancers capitulate as the language of movement transports them to a place beyond words.

Special Event:
Join Alonzo King, LINES dancers, and special guests for LINES Ballet's Opening Night After Party at the St. Regis Hotel, just steps away from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres immediately following the performance on Friday, October 25. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased with your performance tickets for opening night.
