Complexions Contemporary Ballet

Thursday, Jan. 31, 7:30 pm
Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

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 set to music from Bach to Bowie to the Phillips Center. Rhoden’s new hot and raw finale tribute, Star Dust, is a love letter to David Bowie. It takes an array of Bowie’s hits and lays a visual imprint to create a rock-inspired ballet in his honor. Learn more.
