Alonzo King LINES Ballet, the groundbreaking San Francisco-based company noted for melding classical and contemporary ballet and creating works that draw on deeply-rooted cultural traditions, presents the Southern California debut of SUTRA, King’s most recent collaboration with Grammy Award-winning tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain and ninth-generation Sarangi master Sabir Khan, on Thursday, November 1 through Saturday, November 3, 2018, 7:30 pm, in the Bram Goldsmith Theatre at The Wallis. The influences of these masters of rhythm, vibration and movement unite in this acclaimed full-length 70-minute work, hailed as a “spectacular burst of musical and choreographic creativity” (Boston Globe). The complex rhythmic systems of the music combine with King's choreography to celebrate the long-standing continuity between transcendental Eastern thinking and Western ballet's classical forms and techniques. This marks The Wallis debut and the first Los Angeles public appearance since 2015 of LINES Ballet and its choreographer Alonzo King, "one of the few bona fide visionaries in the ballet world today" (San Francisco Chronicle).
SUTRA, created in 2018, was premiered in April, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in the Bay Area as part of Alonzo King LINES Ballet’s 35th anniversary celebration. Founded in 1982, LINES Ballet is at the forefront of artistic innovation in ballet. The company has forged multi-disciplinary collaborations with noted composers, musicians and visual artists from around the world to create performances that alter the way we look at ballet today. Its unique artistic vision adheres to the classical form – the linear, mathematical and geometrical principles that are deeply rooted in the East-West continuum. Connecting audiences to a profound sense of shared humanity, LINES Ballet reaches more than 40,000 audience members worldwide annually through global tours.
Explaining the company’s name, founder Alonzo King says, “The term LINES alludes to all that is visible in the phenomenal world. There is nothing that is made or formed without a line. Straight and circle encompass all that we see.”
