This Fall LINES Ballet celebrates Alonzo King’s 25-year collaboration with tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain.
Since their first collaboration two and a half decades ago, King and Hussain have been pushing the boundaries of creative expression together. Hussain, a classical tabla virtuoso from India, is widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement. His complex rhythmic systems naturally partner with King’s choreography and illustrate the continuity between transcendental Eastern thinking and Western ballet’s classical forms and techniques. This season honors the evolution of their long and fruitful partnership and will feature excerpts from three of their seminal works: Who Dressed You Like a Foreigner, Rasa, and Sutra. Hussain will perform live alongside the LINES Ballet dancers at all performances.
