Artistic visionary and Bay Area treasure Alonzo King invites you to a performance on April 21, 2023 during the Spring Season of his internationally celebrated contemporary ballet company. Absorb the stunning vocals of Grammy Award-winning singer Ms. Lisa Fischer as she performs live alongside the company dancers. King’s heart-stirring choreography will be backed by large-scale visuals from Richard Misrach, one of the most influential photographers of his generation.
“As artists, which we all are, our obsession is to crumble the veils of delusion, to make the invisible apparent, and to see behind all appearance. If I’ve come to a realization where I’ve left the sense of ‘me‘, and expanded to the sense of ‘we’, finally stepping into the idea of ‘oneness’, how can I exploit a mountain? How can I exploit a people? Because I realize that people and that mountain, is me. That ocean that is being polluted is me.” —Alonzo King
