The Museum of Light recognizes celebrated choreographer Alonzo King during its The Light Tuesdays series. Alonzo King explains navigating the duality of light and darkness in his The Light Tuesdays feature. His eloquence makes it clear why the director of San Francisco’s Alonzo King LINES Ballet has been lauded with awards for his work over the past 30 years. Most recently, Dance Heritage Coalition added him to its list of America’s Irreplaceable Dance Treasures. Some of his other prestigious honors include being named Master Choreographer for the Kennedy Center, a Lifetime Achievement Award by Corps de Ballet International Teacher Conference, and San Francisco’s Mayor’s Art Award. His work spans opera, film, and television.
ABOUT THE LIGHT
The Light documentary, which explores the artist’s journey, is being directed by award-winning filmmaker Joslyn Rose Lyons with music journalist Billy Johnson Jr. producing. The online exhibition is being curated by The Light producers in collaboration with Rafael Casal and Blended Creatives.
“There’s an over saturation of salacious media coverage on the Internet. The intent of this project is to add more positive affirmations into the mix,” Johnson says. “The artists we have interviewed for The Light thus far have shared with us the philosophies of their triumphs and we know people will be blessed when they hear these stories. This is just a taste of what’s to come.”
