Alonzo King LINES Ballet
Spring 2011 World Premiere
Visionary choreographer Alonzo King collaborates with legendary musician Mickey Hart and cutting-edge architect Christopher Haas to create a ground-breaking World Premiere. This new work explores the inner and outer space of the body: how do we strive to touch something infinite with our material forms? Drawing on the harmonics of the universe itself, Mickey Hart’s score gathers light waves from the vibrations of heavenly bodies and converts them into layers of sound. Christopher Haas has created an interactive built environment that strikes an intriguing kinetic balance between linear and organic forms, and the extraordinary dancers of Alonzo King LINES Ballet grace the stage with incomparable physical artistry.
