Complexions

"Complexions combines technical precision, power and passion, in a groundbreaking mix of styles ranging from ballet to hip hop.” - Dance Magazine

Since its founding in 1994 by former Alvin Ailey star dancers Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions has dazzled audiences around the world with its fiercely kinetic movement and impassioned, almost superhuman dancers. Featured on the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance,” Complexions launches White Bird’s 20th anniversary season with an exhilarating program set to the music of J.S. Bach and David Bowie.

Sponsored by: KEN & ANN EDWARDS

Talking Points:
-Both Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson danced with Alvin Ailey before starting Complexions
-The company strives to remove boundaries through dance—not enforcing them further
-Dwight Rhoden choreographed Stardust as a tribute to David Bowie
-Featuring costume design from Christine Darch, Stardust highlights the simplistic grandeur of Bowie, with each performer wearing face and body paint
-The 16 member ensemble, along with the artistic directors, teach master classes around the world to all level dancers
