Bernie Krause, Richard Blackford, and Alonzo King LINES Ballet to Present World Premiere at Yerba Buena Center
On April 3, Alonzo King LINES Ballet will premiere a new work developed in collaboration with natural soundscape artist Bernie Krause and composer Richard Blackford. For more than 40 years, Krause has traveled the globe with microphones tuned to the earth and its creatures. His vast archives catalogs the sonic imprint of entire ecosystems, forming an intricate living orchestra. In the new work, as the soundscape permeates the stage, the dancers’ habitat is transformed. Performances run through Sunday, April 12, with a special gala on Saturday, April 11. Tickets are available at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts box office.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Rhodessa Jones’s The Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women, on April 9, Brava! for Women in the Arts and Cultural Odyssey are premiering Birthright?, a new work developed in collaboration between Cultural Odyssey and Planned Parenthood Northern California. All performances will be at Brava Theater Center in San Francisco’s Mission District. Birthright? is running Thursday through Sundays, April 9-19, with a special gala show on Saturday, April 11. Tickets are now available.
