Fittingly described as “the artistic equivalent of a shooting star” (Los Angeles Times), Alonzo King is that rare visionary whose celestial divinations are surprisingly grounded in the here and now. Created with ecologist and soundscape artist Bernie Krause and composer Richard Blackford, King’s Biophony leaps from the rain forests of Borneo to a waterhole in Kenya to a meadow high in the Sierras, echoing animal voices and imprints of habitats in peril. The supremely accomplished LINES dancers imbue classical ballet with new, expressive potential, as they crawl, fly, and flutter, creating apparitions of otherworldly creatures.

Program: Biophony (2015), music by Richard Blackford; sound by Bernie Krause // Additional works to be announced
