San Francisco's Alonzo King LINES Ballet offers bold dance innovations that explore classicism, while breaking the traditional ballet mold. The evening will feature "Men's Quintet," with music by Edgar Meyer; "Concerto for Two Violins," set to music of J. S. Bach; and King's latest creation inspired by animal "soundscapes" from famed bio-acoustician Bernie Krause, PhD. Known for collaborations with The Doors, The Byrds, and Stevie Wonder and for dozens of Hollywood films, Krause describes this collaboration with King as an opportunity to "explore the sonic intersection between natural soundscapes and their profound inspiration of human music and dance." Krause's renowned soundscapes inspired the choreography and served as the core material for new music by composer Richard Blackwell. This program was made possible in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
