Event Details

From sold-out performances that garnered gushing reviews, Complexions Contemporary Ballet brings its latest jaw-dropping program including Star Dust, the glam, “utterly transfixing” tribute to David Bowie (Billboard). Combining technical precision, power and passion, Complexions 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 on So You Think You Can Dance, and their live performance caused Dance Magazine to declare “we live in the age of the super-dancer, at a time when technical virtuosity is being redefined.” Dance critic Sarah Kaufman of The Washington Post hails Star Dust as “simply one of the most exciting performances I’ve seen.”

The Straz Center is a partner of the National Performance Network. This project is made possible in part by support from the National Performance Network (NPN) Artist Engagement Fund. Major contributors include the Doris Duke Foundation, Ford Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Go to npnweb.org for more information.
