The Performing Arts Center: Complexions Contemporary Ballet
February 4 @ 8:00 pm
“Companies like Complexions are game-changing: they’re forging a path for what ballet can be instead of what it historically has been.” – The Guardian
Dance has the power to transcend everyday and raise our collective consciousness. Led by dance icons Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions Contemporary Ballet has awakened audiences, reinventing dance and contemporary ballet through a groundbreaking mix of methods, styles, and cultures. With stunning gifted dancers and mesmerizing choreography, Complexions’ has been hailed as a “matchless American dance company” by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The program will include WOKE (2019), a bold and galvanizing ballet that examines our humanity in the context of current divisiveness, and Love Rocks (2020), set to the music of the iconic Lenny Kravitz. Fun and thrilling with an elegant edge, the choreography is just as electrifying as Kravitz’s music – a powerful conclusion to a memorable evening.
