Join Alonzo King LINES Ballet in Costa Mesa, California performing at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
Experience the rich body of work created by visionary choreographer Alonzo King. Leading the performance is AZOTH, one of Alonzo King LINES Ballet’s acclaimed cross-disciplinary collaborations. Charles Lloyd, Jason Moran, and Alonzo King create an unforgettable dialogue between movement and music that illuminates the shared freedom and wonder of their art forms. “Alonzo has a way of hearing,” explains Moran. “His choreography becomes melodic content.” Lloyd, a Memphis Music Hall of Fame inductee, and Moran, a MacArthur Fellow and artistic director for jazz at the Kennedy Center, share a boundless, multidisciplinary approach to their craft that perfectly compliments King’s expansive vision for ballet. This bold work features a light installation by renowned Bay Area artist Jim Campbell whose work crowns San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower.
Rounding out the evening are a series of stunning excerpts from the Company’s nearly forty-year history.
