April 21, 2011
The Alonzo King LINES Ballet, San Francisco's premiere contemporary ballet teamed up with the Women's HIV Program at UCSF for the second time to dedicate its performance on April 21, 2011 to the issue of HIV in minority women. Alonzo King LINES Ballet is renowned for its ability to connect audiences to a proufound sense of shared humanity - of vulnerability and tenderness, but also of furious abandon and exhilarating freedom. The performance was a collaboration with renowned architect Christopher Haas with music by legendary musician Mickey Hart.
