Alonzo King LINES Ballet Pre-Performance Talk: Jill Nunes Jensen

Saturday, November 16, 2019 | 6:30 pm


In the past 37 years, Alonzo King LINES Ballet has been a force in ballet’s transformation. Dr. Jill Nunes Jensen, a contemporary ballet scholar who has chronicled the company for years, will explore how King and his company redefine ballet to share new narratives about creation, process, and collaboration. 

Saturday, November 16, 6:30 PM
The Landing, Bryan Center, Duke University
Free and open to the public

Part of Duke Performances’ Ballet Futures series, Nunes Jensen’s talk is part of a yearlong exploration — through regular performances and convenings featuring leading ballet choreographers and companies — of the present and future of the form. More information about Ballet Futures is available HERE.

The Alonzo King LINES Ballet residency culminates in a pair of performances, on Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16, in Duke’s Reynolds Industries Theater. Tickets and info available HERE.

Co-sponsored by Dr. Thomas F. DeFrantz and SLIPPAGE@Duke.
