Alonzo King LINES Ballet at Segerstrom Center

September 07, 2021

Segerstrom Center for the Arts presents the mesmerizing dancers of Alonzo King LINES Ballet performing “gripping, urgently beautiful choreography” (San Francisco Chronicle) by visionary choreographer Alonzo King.

Leading the performance in Segerstrom Hall is AZOTH, a luminous ballet that premiered in 2019 with music recorded by  Charles Lloyd and Jason Moran, complete with a striking light installation by Jim Campbell.  Rounding out the evening are repertoire excerpts featuring works set to music by Zakir Hussain, Gabriel Fauré, and Edgar Meyer. The Company will showcase a single performance on Saturday, September 11 at 7:30 p.m. In 2022 LINES will celebrate its 40th Anniversary with two major theatrical premieres, a film, a book, and global touring.

Saxophonist Lloyd, composer-pianist Moran, and King create an unforgettable dialogue between movement and music that illuminates the shared freedom and wonder of their art forms. “Alonzo has a way of hearing,” explains Moran. “His choreography becomes melodic content.” 

This bold new work features a light installation by renowned Bay Area artist Jim Campbell whose work “Day for Night” is a permanent LED exhibit at the top of the San Francisco Salesforce Tower in San Francisco, featuring moving images of Alonzo King LINES Ballet Dancers.  Campbell’s work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
