Alonzo King LINES Ballet A VISIONS AND VOICES SIGNATURE EVENT PRESENTED WITH USC SPECTRUM Monday, November 7, 7 p.m. Bovard Auditorium Join us for a stunning and spectacular evening of dance featuring Alonzo King LINES Ballet. Based in San Francisco, LINES is a celebrated contemporary ballet company that has been guided since 1982 by its uniquely global artistic vision. Collaborating with noted composers, musicians and visual artists, choreographer and artistic director Alonzo King creates works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions and imbue classical ballet with new expressive potential. His visionary choreography is renowned for its ability to connect audiences to a profound sense of shared humanity—of vulnerability and tenderness, but also of furious abandon and exhilarating freedom. LINES has presented extraordinary performances to great acclaim throughout the world. Join us as they present two of their signature works, Rasa and Refraction.
