COMPLEXIONS CONTEMPORARY BALLET

Apr 14 - 16

COMPLEXIONS Contemporary Ballet is thrilled to be making their Wallis debut with its signature boundary-breaking style. Founded by Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden, “two of the greatest virtuosos ever to emerge from Ailey” (New York Times), Complexions’ high-octane movement astonishes audiences through their signature style of fusing ballet, contemporary, jazz and hip-hop. With stunningly gifted dancers and powerful choreography, the ensemble opens up new worlds to viewers and regularly causes a stir internationally. This program features the WEST COAST PREMIERE of SNATCHED BACK from the EDGES.

"Rhoden's work is post-Balanchinean choreography, a new aesthetic in movement, stage picture, and performance concepts reflecting a post-modern, techno-savvy worldview." - Dance Magazine

"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
