"Gripping, urgently beautiful choreography." San Francisco Chronicle, April 2011
"[Alonzo King] possesses a sort of magical science of gesture and spatiality. The technique is classically based--the women are en pointe--but the capacity for choreographic innovation is boundless." Le Monde (France)
"Alonzo King—that American choreographer who creates in order to re-form the dance language of classical ballet… shows the audience a noble and elegant aspect of movement, with the aim of transporting them into the heavens of dance." Die Neue (Austria)
With his bold, abstract poetry of movement, Alonzo King is exploring a new understanding of what dance can be. Since 1982, Alonzo King’s original choreography has been brought to life by the extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers, in performances critics have called, “Stunning, fierce and evocative."
Known for connecting audiences to a profound sense of humanity, Alonzo 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.
