Alonzo King LINES Ballet, led by choreographer Alonzo King, bends the lines between classical and contemporary aesthetics while drawing from deeply rooted cultural traditions. The company presents Deep River, a soulful collaboration with Grammy–winning vocalist Lisa Fischer and jazz pianist and composer Jason Moran, that melds dance with Black spirituals, inviting audiences to look at human beings as the pinnacle of creation. In King’s words, “love is the ocean that we rose from, swim in, and will one day return to” — and that love can set us free. 

Gripping, urgently beautiful choreography.
