Alonzo King LINES Ballet Collaboration with Mickey Hart and Christopher Haas - Spring Season, April 15-24, 2011

This spring, visionary choreographer Alonzo King is collaborating with legendary musician Mickey Hart and cutting-edge architect Christopher Haas to create a ground-breaking World Premiere. This new work explores the inner and outer space of the body: how do we strive to touch something infinite with our material forms? What is the resonance between the bodies we inhabit and the forms we create?

When our bodies carve out space, they echo the vast wheeling of the constellations—the sacred geometry that emanates from the cosmos. In the moment that hovers between form and ethereal spirit, we hear the rhythm of our heartbeats in the frequencies of far-flung stars.

Drawing on the harmonics of the universe itself, Mickey Hart's score gathers light waves from the vibrations of heavenly bodies and converts them into layers of sound. Christopher Haas has created an interactive built environment that strikes an intriguing kinetic balance between linear and organic forms, and the extraordinary dancers of Alonzo King LINES Ballet grace the stage with incomparable physical artistry.
