With utter calm and fierce precision, the dancers of LINES Ballet and the
Shaolin monks of China create an unprecedented synthesis of Eastern and
Western classical forms, as if ascending together from the stage to the
heavens through pure, gorgeous intensity of movement.

The collaboration between Alonzo King and the Shaolin monks integrates two
distinct classical traditions of movement—ballet and martial arts—by fusing
their unique elements at a very deep level.

This project is unique in the history of the Company: although LINES Ballet
has always invested in artistic interchanges through music and culture on a
global level, this is the first time that the Company has embarked on a
collaboration that truly integrates Alonzo King’s choreography with a
different classical movement form. “At its heart, this project is an
inter-cultural exploration between artists,” says Mr. King.

The premiere will be set to an original score of traditional Chinese and
contemporary music, performed live.
