An exciting mix of classical dance technique and a unique, personal perspective: this is the cornerstone of Alonzo King's choreographies and the recipe for the success of the Alonzo King Lines Ballet, one of North America's most distinguished dance companies. Their first guest appearance in Wiesbaden will see them presenting two of their classics: "Common Ground" was created together with the renowned Kronos Quartet, leading to a genre-defying celebration of music and dance, while "Händel" resonates to a complex "music of the body" - inspired by the dramatic elegance of the Baroque and the resonance of space which Handel's music represents.
