Seven Seas

Alonzo King LINES Ballet and composer Trey Spruance explore the interconnectedness of humanity and nature in the face of climate disruption.

Seven Seas (working title), a collaboration between LINES Ballet’s Artistic Director Alonzo King and San Francisco composer Trey Spruance, will investigate how climate disruption is shifting our understanding of what it means to be interconnected in this global age. The new work will bring together King’s unique approach to contemporary ballet with Spruance’s original score that highlights diverse musical traditions from frontline communities. LINES’ Creative Director Robert Rosenwasser and French-Martinican visual artist Pierre Roy-camille will build a stunning visual landscape using video projections and large scale scrims that immerse the twelve LINES dancers in the beauty and fragility of the Arctic. Together, King and his collaborators will invite audiences to consider what stands to be lost as global temperatures rise and whole communities seek refuge from mass flooding and other forecasted impacts, including the cultural and musical traditions at risk.
