“King is always after something timeless, difficult, yet beautiful.” Ann Murphy, San Jose Mercury News, 2014
Guided by the visionary creator Alonzo King, LINES Ballet was an instant sensation when it made its NAC debut in 2013. King creates works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions, infusing classical ballet technique with exuberant and expressive potential. In honour of the company’s 35th Anniversary, he reunites with the classical tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain to collaborate on a dynamic fusion of rhythm and movement to showcase the company’s brilliant dancers. A sensory feast for the eyes and ears!
Did you know: King was named one of America’s "Irreplaceable Dance Treasures" by the Dance Heritage Coalition in 2015.
