On the heels of a sold-out Paris season, San Francisco based Alonzo King LINES Ballet returns to the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater with a stunning world premiere set to music that spans the globe. The deft 11-member company will also reprise a trilogy of iconic sections from King’s body of work. The retrospective includes pieces danced to music of jazz legend Pharoah Sanders as well as to the heart-piercing melodies of bassist Edgar Meyer. King’s visionary choreography, brought to life by the extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers, is "a discovery absolutely worth making."
