Vancouver International Dance Festival (VIDF) proudly present exquisitely hyperkinetic and technically superb Alonzo King LINES Ballet on March 3 & 4, 2017 at the Vancouver Playhouse. Following a triumphant, sold-out appearance at VIDF in 2012, the endlessly innovative ensemble returns to share two electric Canadian premieres of SAND and Shostakovich from visionary namesake and founder Alonzo King. SAND is touted as "transformative" -- a sophisticated spectacle performed to the original, masterful score of tenor saxophonist Charles Lloyd and jazz pianist Jason Moran. Shostakovich takes ballet to extreme dimensions with its explosive athleticism. Set to four Shostakovich string quartets, the company is pushed to the limit, moving at fast, frenetic paces: one minute performing triple and quadruple pirouettes ---the next, effortlessly balancing on pointe in gorgeous, long limbed poses.
