Dance St. Louis, one of the country longest running and few remaining nonprofit dance presenters, kicks off its 57th season by presenting Complexions Contemporary Ballet on Saturday, November 5 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center.

 

The cutting-edge ballet company was founded in 1994 by Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richmond — “two of the greatest virtuosos to ever emerge from Ailey [Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater] land” (The New York Times).

 

Whether it’s LOVE ROCKS (choreography by Dwight Rhoden, music by Lenny Kravitz) or STAR DUST: From Bach to Bowie, Complexions has been hailed as “game-changing… forging a path for what ballet can be instead of what it historically has been” (The Guardian).

 

Complexions Contemporary Ballet has awakened audiences to a new, exciting genre with its singular approach of reinventing dance and contemporary ballet through a groundbreaking mix of methods, styles and cultures. Complexions’ high-octane movement astonishes audiences by pairing its fierce evocative style with musical ranges from David Bowie to Johann Bach.

 

With stunning gifted dancers and powerful choreography, Complexions has been hailed as a “matchless American dance company” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Having presented an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement on 5 continents, more than 20 countries, to over 20 million television viewers and to well over 300,000 people in live audiences, Complexions is poised to continue its mission of bring unity to the world one dance at a time.
