Alonzo King Lines Ballet

Storrs Campus
Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts

With his bold, abstract poetry of movement, Alonzo King is exploring a new understanding of what dance can be. Since 1982, Alonzo King’s original choreography has been brought to life by the extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers, who critics have called “stunning, fierce and evocative.” Known for connecting audiences to a profound sense of humanity, Alonzo King has collaborated with noted composers, musicians, and visual artists to create works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions, imbuing classical ballet with new expressive potential.
