Alonzo King LINES Ballet
San Francisco Premiere of Writing Ground

“… a searing performance that illustrates the power of Alonzo King’s story-telling at its height.”
Huffington Post

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.
