In celebration of Alonzo King LINES Ballet’s thirty-five years of groundbreaking art-making in the SF Bay Area and around the world, Alonzo King and Lisa Fischer will team up for the return of The Propelled Heart at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater November 15-19 for six performances only. This highly acclaimed collaboration premiered to record-breaking audiences in 2015 and this return season promises to sell quickly.

“Lisa Fischer is a brilliant artist with a fully throbbing heart and expansive mind. She is an inspiration of sound, body, and being.” —Alonzo King

Called “a phenomenal powerhouse” by The New York Times, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Ms. Lisa Fischer has shared the stage with musical luminaries of nearly every genre, including Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Beyoncé and Sting. In The Propelled Heart Ms. Fischer joins the dancers of LINES Ballet in a collaboration which achieves “rock star status” (San Francisco Classical Voice) as they pay tribute to the power of song. The piece is a voyage in which King explores the kinetics of the human voice, revealing the communicative potential of the body as an instrument, and also as a vocal chord.
