Experience the communion of jazz luminaries Charles Lloyd and Jason Moran with dance pioneer Alonzo King.

Together in San Francisco for six days of world-premiere performances, Lloyd, Moran and King create an unforgettable dialogue between movement and music that illuminates the shared freedom and wonder of their art forms. “Alonzo has a way of hearing,” explains Moran. “His choreography becomes melodic content.”

Lloyd, a Memphis Music Hall of Fame inductee, and Moran, a MacArthur Fellow and artistic director for jazz at the Kennedy Center, share a boundless, multidisciplinary approach to their craft that perfectly compliments King’s expansive vision for ballet.

This bold new work features a light installation by renowned Bay Area artist Jim Campbell whose work crowns the Salesforce Tower.

“Lines Ballet is a pure aesthetic pleasure. It is a poem perfectly written in space.” Libération Paris
