Alonzo King's LINES Ballet: Nourishing Heart and Body through Art

World-renowned choreographer Alonzo King, and four artists from his international touring company, demonstrate “what the body is” and how ideas can be communicated through physical language. They offer new insights into artistic obsession and the emphasis on the mind and the heart dancing the bodily instrument. A choreographed performance will be followed by a conversation with Alonzo King highlighting the importance of art in developing wholeness — both in human beings and in communities.
