Alonzo King LINES Ballet’s Deep River at Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center

Celebrated American choreographer Alonzo King and his company Alonzo King LINES Ballet will make their Lincoln Center debut with Deep River, at once a contemplative and high-intensity work of heart-stopping beauty. King has been recognized internationally as one of the most consequential choreographers of his time, and noted by The New York Times as a choreographer with “astonishing originality.” Deep River is a collaboration featuring GRAMMY Award–winning vocalist Lisa Fischer (20 Feet to Stardom and longtime lead backup vocalist for the Rolling Stones) and Kennedy Center Artistic Director for Jazz and MacArthur Award winner Jason Moran. Melding dance with spiritual music from the Black, Jewish, and Indian traditions, Deep River invites audiences to consider the physical beauty and majesty of humanity as the pinnacle of creation. King says the work is a reminder that “love is the ocean that we rose from, swim in, and will one day return to”—and that love, when deeply cultured, can liberate us.
