UPCOMING EVENTS

Apr 12

This season LINES Ballet presents a world premiere, a reimagining of The Collective Agreement, and 2013’s Concerto for Two Violins. Originally commissioned by San Francisco Ballet in 2018, The Collective Agreement, Alonzo King’s acclaimed collaboration with jazz pianist Jason Moran, takes on new life in a transformative re-envisioning by King, the LINES Ballet dancers, and light installation artist Jim Campbell. Their artistic alchemy will infuse the ballet with new resonance. “We are, as a community, trying to reach wholeness,” King says. “How do we come together?” The intimate duets and ensembles echo the rising tempi of composer Moran’s original score, his first for a symphony orchestra and his eighth for LINES Ballet. The music was recorded live for this performance by the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, with Moran on piano. In addition, King and the company will present a world premiere along with a reprise of 2013’s Concerto for Two Violins, which turns the layers of fugue and counterpoint of Johann Sebastian Bach’s 1730 work into metaphors of human relationships.

The stage floor burns with the pulsating sounds of rhythmical footwork, song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar; that rivets the senses. High energy and passion define a new dimension in flamenco and Spanish dance. This is a cozy show series with Ms. Flamenco along with a rotating cast of remarkable flamenco artists. Located in a historical location that used to be a speakeasy, where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio had their wedding dinner.
