Visionary choreographer Alonzo King has altered the way the world looks at ballet. His astonishingly original work explores new possibilities of form, renewing and transcending traditional technique to create an entirely innovative expression of movement.

The program will include a piece created in collaboration with classical Indian percussion virtuoso Zakir Hussain. The synergy created by this partnership results in deeply evocative movement set to an original score and represents both a continuation of tradition and an expression of the contemporary global vision of both artists.

Like an arrow poised for flight, an undercurrent of restless agitation pervades King’s Shostakovich, named for the composer. The dancers’ tensile strength is pushed to the limit as they revel in the space between harmony and discord.
