Alonzo King Lines Ballet

January 10 to 12, 8:00 PM Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Choreographer Alonzo King is renowned for creating work that infuses classical ballet with new expression and expansive histories. With his latest work, Figures of Speech, he explores the power of lost languages, collaborating with slam poet Bob Holman, a leading advocate of linguistic preservation. Set to a collection of Native peoples’ poetry and music, this evening-length ballet is a poignant journey through the sound, movement, meaning and shape of indigenous languages on the verge of extinction.

Jeremy Dink

January 15, 7:30 PM Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

The space between two points is rich, deep and expansive.

Inspired by themes from Martha Friedman: Castoffs, Syniva Whitney and Alyza DelPan-Monley investigate the parts and the whole, the virtuosic and the distorted, the classically idealized masculine body and the reality of our unique gender-diverse expressions of beauty. They will drop ideological and material anchors to give participants safe harbors to explore these deep waters. This workshop is open to all levels of experience and levels of ableness, and will use a diverse range of options for using the body’s kinesthetic and somatic experience to uncover new understandings.

$10 tickets for UW students when you show your Husky ID in advance at the ArtsUW Ticket Office or on the night of the show at the Box Office at Meany Hall. More Info
