Dust and Light/Rasa - T02078747715In their UK debut, choreographer Alonzo King and his Lines Ballet from San Francisco bring a pair of works to the Festival which show the vulnerability and tenderness of his choreography alongside the furious abandon and exhilarating freedom of his company's contemporary classical style. Dust and Light - Alonzo King's dancers find themselves bathed in silvery radiance in this emotional and exuberant work. Dust and Light is set to beautiful baroque music by Corelli and ethereal choral works by Poulenc. From intimate duets and trios Dust and Light expands outwards into an elaborate ensemble, immersing the audience in a luminous grace. Rasa - Originating in 16th century India, tabla music developed as dance music, each mesmerising and melodic drum beat inspiring a unique human movement. Rasa is Alonzo King's third collaboration with Grammy Award-winning tabla master Zakir Hussain, who performs live on stage with the spellbinding singer and violinist Kala Ramnath.Choreographer Alonzo King.
