Alonzo King LINES Ballet
January 10 @ 8:00 pm - January 12 @ 10:00 pm$60 – $68
Choreographer Alonzo King is renowned for creating work that infuses classical ballet with new expression and expansive histories. With his latest work, Figures of Speech, he explores the power of lost languages, collaborating with slam poet Bob Holman, a leading advocate of linguistic preservation. Set to a collection of native peoples’ poetry and music played live on traditional instruments, this evening-length ballet is a poignant journey through the sound, movement, meaning and shape of indigenous languages on the verge of extinction.
