Bach to Bowie
Combining technical precision, power, and passion, Complexions Contemporary Ballet transcends tradition in a groundbreaking mix of styles ranging from ballet to hip hop. Founded by former members of Alvin Ailey, Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden, the company has been featured several times on the hit show So You Think You Can Dance. This season the company brings an exhilarating program that will feature Rhoden's Star Dust an "utterly transfixing" tribute to the life and music of David Bowie, full of glitter and glam.
Complexions Contemporary Ballet makes it "sensationally, jaw-droppingly clear that we live in the age of the super-dancer, at a time when technical virtuosity is being redefined as an expressive state."
