Join Alonzo King LINES Ballet in Washington, D.C. performing at The Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater. Grounded on more than 40 years of thought-provoking dance, master choreographer Alonzo King’s unique artistic vision honors and advances the classical form—the linear, mathematical, and geometrical principles deeply rooted in the East-West continuum. Witness King’s genius in his sought-after work, Deep River, performed live with MacArthur Fellow composer Jason Moran and Grammy Award-winning vocalist Lisa Fischer.

Deep River is a call to keep hope, to make the lotus bloom in the mud, and to look at each other as a family of souls. Created over three years and throughout the pandemic, Deep River is a piece written with the heart, a love letter to a world writhing in pain, served by exceptional dancers.

Deep River soars along a highway to the heavens, taking us on a journey from chaos and despair to revelation and deliverance.” —See Chicago Dance
