Alonzo King LINES Ballet

A figure of African-American dancing, Alonzo King is performing for the first time in Luxemburg with his troupe, LINES Ballet. Endowed with a natural sensuality, ten athletic women and men offer, just by dancing, an astonishing emotional journey. King collaborated with the greatest on that occasion: jazz pianist Jason Moran created the play’s original soundtrack and Lisa Fischer, a Grammy Award laureate, commands with her gospel singing. A manner to display a humanistic dancing, where sweeping ensemble moves make way for sculptural and carnal duos, in a tireless quest for beauty.

« Un classique spiralé, tourbillonnant et déhanché (...) qui vrille le corps jusqu’au bout des doigts. »
