Led by former Alvin Ailey virtuosos and So You Think You Can Dance choreographers, Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions is sure to dazzle and thrill with Rhoden’s fiercely kinetic choreography and the company’s daredevil dancing. The first work of the evening is STAR DUST, a tribute to the genre-bending innovation of David Bowie. This rock-opera-style ballet pays homage to Bowie’s iconic and chameleonic spirit. The program also includes Ballad Unto, a bold, sprawling abstraction on the intimacy of love set to the music of J.S. Bach.

[Complexions 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.
