Spring Season Performance (Q&A with Alonzo King)

April 10, 2024

  • This event has passed.

This Spring Season 2024, LINES Ballet presents a triple bill of works by artistic director Alonzo King, including a world premiere, a reimagining of The Collective Agreement, and 2013’s Concerto for Two Violins. Originally commissioned by San Francisco Ballet in 2018, The Collective Agreement, Alonzo King’s acclaimed collaboration with jazz pianist Jason Moran, takes on new life in a transformative re-envisioning by King, the LINES Ballet dancers, and light installation artist Jim Campbell.

Their artistic alchemy will infuse the ballet with new resonance. “We are, as a community, trying to reach wholeness,” King says. “How do we come together?” The intimate duets and ensembles echo the rising tempi of composer Moran’s original score, his first for a symphony orchestra and his eighth for LINES Ballet. The music was recorded live for this performance by the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, with Moran on piano.

In addition, Alonzo King and the company will present a world premiere along with a reprise of 2013’s Concerto for Two Violins, which turns the layers of fugue and counterpoint of Johann Sebastian Bach’s 1730 work into metaphors of human relationships.
