Alice Jepson Theatre


Alonzo King LINES Ballet
Figures of Speech


Thirty-six years of outstanding, multi-disciplinary collaborations for the stage place Alonzo King LINES Ballet at the forefront of artistic innovation in ballet. While adhering to the classical form, the Company has collaborated with noted composers, musicians, and visual artists to create performances that alter the way we look at ballet today.

In their return to the Modlin Center, Alonzo King LINES Ballet explores the power of lost languages in Figures of Speech. Over half the world’s nearly 7,000 languages are at risk of vanishing by the end of the century. Poet and activist Bob Holman is a leading advocate of linguistic preservation and revitalization in indigenous communities. His recorded collection of native peoples’ poetry and song informs the soundscape of this stunning evening-length ballet.

Stay after the performance for a Q&A discussion with members of the Company.
