Join Alonzo King LINES Ballet on Tour in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France performing at Théâtre des Sablons. Experience the rich body of work created by visionary choreographer Alonzo King. The performance includes The Personal Element and AZOTH, one of Alonzo King LINES Ballet’s acclaimed cross-disciplinary collaborations.
The Personal Element
Set to a piano score by Jason Moran, The Personal Element is a piece that allows the viewer to marvel at the movements and the choreography. In a sober and elegant setting, eight dancers give pride of place to this poetic invitation, letting the spectators establish a personal connection with the piece.
Azoth is the name given to Mercury by the ancient alchemists. It is an essential agent for transformation. From this symbol, the choreographer and musicians Charles Lloyd and Jason Moran create an unforgettable dialogue between movement and music.
