Join Alonzo King LINES Ballet in East Lansing, Michigan performing at Michigan State University’s Wharton Center for the Performing Arts. Celebrating 40 years of evocative dance, master choreographer Alonzo King’s unique artistic vision adheres to the classical form—the linear, mathematical and geometrical principles deeply rooted in the East-West continuum. The company will perform King’s newest creation, Deep River, a collaboration with composer Jason Moran and vocalist Lisa Fischer. Bending the lines between classical and contemporary ballet, he draws on the strengths of his extraordinary dancers, altering the way we look at ballet today.
