Join Alonzo King LINES Ballet in Mérignac, France performing at Le Pin Galant. Celebrating over four decades 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.

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. A piece written with the heart, a love letter to a world writhing in pain, served by exceptional dancers. A humanist piece of great beauty.

“Alonzo King is one of the few bona fide visionaries in the ballet world today” — San Francisco Chronicle
