Ballet in two acts
Filmed in the Kerner Studios (Windward Stage A+B), San Francisco

Premiered April 2011: “Triangle of the Squinches” is set to a commissioned score by legendary musician, Mickey Hart, and features an innovative kinetic set by cutting-edge architect, Christopher Haas. In this piece, Alonzo King explores the inner and outer space of the body: how do we strive to touch something infinite with our material forms? What is the resonance between the bodies we inhabit and the forms we create?
