A stellar duet highlights Alonzo King LINES Ballet's 'Constellation'
Constellation was inspired by Jim Campbell's light sculpture Exploded Views, in which hundreds of flickering LED lights create a sense of stasis as well as life. Fascinating, it looked like television snow being animated by moving silhouettes. Unfortunately, Campbell's translation of the concept to the stage didn't quite work: black shapes, perhaps fluttering birds, behind the light curtain; rolling lit balls; light boards; and Wheelan wrapped in Joseph's dreamcoat (of light bulbs). *
