Alonzo King and Bernie Krause are both master storytellers. But where King shapes his narratives through choreographing ballet dancers, Krause tells nature's stories with his recordings of wild animals and the great outdoors. The two artists recently teamed up for an unlikely collaboration, and they join us to talk about their upcoming performance this week at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. We look at happens when the world of ballet meets the sounds of the wild.
