ON TOUR: LANNION, FRANCE | Alonzo King LINES Ballet

MAY 15

Join Alonzo King LINES Ballet on tour in Lannion, France performing Figures of Speech and Art Songs (excepts) at the Le Carré Magique.

Figures of Speech
Human voices from remote corners of the globe convene on stage as Alonzo King LINES Ballet explores the power of lost languages. Over half the world’s nearly 7,000 languages are at risk of vanishing by the end of the century. Poet and activist Bob Holman is a leading advocate of linguistic preservation and revitalization in indigenous communities. His recorded collection of native peoples’ poetry and song informs the soundscape of this evening-length ballet choreographed by King.

Art Songs 
Israeli mezzo-soprano Maya Lahyani collaborates with Alonzo King for Art Songs, an exploration of the potent and immediate effect sound has on humanity.

 “Because humans are an expression of the Creative Word, sound has the most potent and immediate effect on us. The ancient rishis of India discovered laws of sound alliance between nature and man. Sound and vibration are the seed thought that forms the universes.”
–Alonzo King
