8 Performances Only
This spring, audiences will have a rare opportunity to experience the rich body of work created over four decades by visionary choreographer Alonzo King. Four Decades of Creation, performed by LINES’ world-renowned dancers, draws from the archive of collaborations with extraordinary artists Zakir Hussain, Sabir Khan, Jason Moran, Etta James and Pharoah Sanders and music composed by Bach and Handel. The enduring power of these unique works has moved audiences from the 1980s to the present. The evening also features GRACE, an exclusive encore performance of King’s recent commission by Grace Cathedral. While it draws its inspiration from diverse sacred music traditions, it is a ballet for our times.
