A Celebration Fusing Spirituals and Dance

Alonzo King LINES Ballet

Deep River

“King is one of the few bona fide visionaries in the ballet world today.” San Francisco Chronicle

Deep River soars along a highway to the heavens, taking us on a journey from chaos and despair to revelation and deliverance.” See Chicago Dance

Blurring the lines between classical and contemporary, San Francisco-based Alonzo King LINES Ballet is renowned for its impeccable technique, captivating dancers and rich visual works. Alonzo King’s newest creation, Deep River, uses spiritual music from Black and Jewish traditions alongside original compositions by Jason Moran to assert the power of hope in the face of seemingly impossible odds. The piece premiered last year to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary and is described by King as a reminder that “love is the ocean that we rose from, swim in, and will one day return to” – and that love can set us free.
