The Forum is a series of stimulating conversations about faith, ethics and culture in relation to the important issues of our day. They invite inspiring and illustrious people to sit down for a real conversation with the Forum’s host, Malcolm Clemens Young, the dean of Grace Cathedral and with you. Guests range from artists, inventors and philosophers to pop culturists and elected officials, but the point of The Forum is singular: civil, sophisticated discourse that engages minds and hearts to think in new ways about the world.
On Mother’s Day, The Forum welcomes internationally celebrated choreographer and Grace Cathedral’s 2019 Artist in Residence, Alonzo King, on the spiritual elements of dance and the cathedral’s annual theme “Year of the Body.”
About the guest
Alonzo King has been called a visionary choreographer, who is altering the way we look at ballet. King calls his works “thought structures” created by the manipulation of energies that exist in matter through laws, which govern the shapes and movement directions of everything that exists. King has works in the repertories of the Royal Swedish Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet, Ballet Béjart, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, Joffrey Ballet, Alvin Ailey, Hong Kong Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and many others. He has worked extensively in opera, television, and film.
