A rainy night in Central Park didn’t stop an incredible moment in dance.
Alonzo King LINES Ballet’s performance was cut short due to weather, but the act they did accomplish was incredible. With moves made of magic they stunned an audience who watched them gracefully glide on a rain-drenched stage.
From costumes to choreography the beauty of the troupe was a strong representation of the best in art in New York City stages.
Returning to SummerStage for the first time since 2003, Alonzo King LINES Ballet is an internationally celebrated contemporary ballet company that has been guided since 1982 by the unique artistic vision of Alonzo King. The vision is brought to life by the extraordinary LINES Ballet dancers.
Renowned for connecting audiences to a profound sense of shared humanity. Celebrating their 35th anniversary season, the Company, based in San Francisco, will perform “Sand” with music by jazz artists Jason Moran and Charles Lloyd, and “Biophony”, a collaboration with natural soundscape artist Bernie Krause and composer Richard Blackford.
Next up Popular Bronx-based drum and dance troupe, Bombazo Dance Co., will showcase traditional Afro Puerto Rican Bomb, Afro Caribbean, and traditional folkloric elements at the Bronx’s Saint Mary’s Park on Friday, July 27. Led by the Puerto-Rican born and raised, Milteri Tucker, the Company regularly performs at local venues such as Hostos College, Lehman Center, the Pregones Theater and others. They will be joined by The Sabrosura Effect, a Latin fusion dance company that combines Cuban folkloric with NY Style Salsa on 2, and Contemporary movement.
