About the Event

Biophony
with additional repertory

Called “riveting” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Alonzo King’s Biophony is a fascinating investigation of life on earth. Created in collaboration with natural soundscape artist Bernie Krause and composer Richard Blackford, the score draws from the rainforests of Borneo, a waterhole in Kenya, the Alaskan tundra, and a meadow high in the Sierra Nevada mountains, echoing animal voices and imprints of habitats in peril. King’s visionary choreography, brought to life by the extraordinary LINES dancers, has an earthy and sensual feeling that imbues classical ballet with new, expressive potential. Dancers crawl, fly, elongate, flutter, and somersault, creating composites of otherworldly creatures.

“…one of the few bona fide visionaries in the ballet world today…” -San Francisco Chronicle
