From page B6 | September 27, 2013 |

Alonzo King LINES Ballet makes its Harris Center debut, performing “Meyer,” a new work to a score by Edgar Meyer and Resin.

With his bold, abstract poetry of movement, King explores a new understanding of what dance can be. Since 1982, King’s original choreography has been brought to life by the extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers, in performances critics have called, “Stunning, fierce and evocative.”

Alonzo King LINES Ballet is a celebrated contemporary ballet company that has been guided since 1982 by the unique artistic vision of King.

Collaborating with noted composers, musicians and visual artists from around the world, King creates works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions, imbuing classical ballet with new expressive potential.

Leading choreographer, William Forsythe, refers to King as “one of the few, true Ballet Masters of our times.”

King understands ballet as a science — founded on universal, geometric principles of energy and evolution and continues to develop a new language of movement from its classical forms and techniques.

Known for connecting audiences to a profound sense of humanity, King has collaborated with noted composers, musicians and visual artists to create works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions, imbuing classical ballet with new expressive potential.

King has works in the repertories of the Swedish Royal Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet, Ballet Bejart, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Joffrey Ballet, Alvin Ailey, Hong Kong Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.

He has worked extensively in opera, television and film. Known for collaborations, seminal works include “People of the Forest,” choreographed with Baka artists from Central African Republic and “Long River High Sky,” with China’s Shaolin Monks.

He has collaborated with actor Danny Glover, legendary jazz saxophonist Pharaoh Sanders, Hamza al Din, Pawel Szymanski, Jason Moran and tabla master Zakir Hussain.

Renowned for his skill as a teacher, King has been guest ballet master for dance companies around the globe.

Alonzo King LINES Ballet will perform on Friday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $21 to $34 and premium $45. Students with ID $12. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.
