Vancouver International Dance Festival is thrilled to bring back Alonzo King LINES Ballet back on stage for an IN-PERSON production!
LINES Ballet seeks to replicate these components with their own language – A double-bill of compelling contemporary movement, the centerpiece of the performance was Azoth, a new collaboration between Artistic Director Alonzo King, tenor saxophonist Charles Lloyd and composer/pianist Jason Moran, who together accompanied the work live. According to the program, the ten-movement suite, danced by a cast of ten, looked to the element mercury for inspiration. And like mercury, from one second to the next, it was impossible to know what might be in store. Azoth was deliciously challenging to pin down.
