Complexions Contemporary Ballet
NEW YORK  •  The Joyce Theater  •  Ongoing
Founded in 1994 by Alvin Ailey alumni Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions is known for the densely-packed rhythms and explosive energy of Rhoden’s choreography, as well as the superb nimbleness of the dancers.

For its 2012 autumn Joyce season, the American company,Complexions Contemporary Ballet, performs two new works by Dwight Rhoden, including the New York premiere of The Curve, an abstract, conceptual full company work set to an eclectic score and the world premiere of Subject To Change, set to the music of Rockjazz virtuoso ELEW, which features unique renditions of songs by artists such as Linkin Park and The Bravery. The program also includes the New York premiere of Flight, a male duet choreographed by Jae Man Joo and set to Johann Sebastian Bach and the world premiere of Memories by Camille A. Brown, which is set to an original score and was commissioned by The Joyce Theater Foundation with the support of the The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Repertory favorites like Testament, On Holiday, and a new production of Pretty Gritty Suite, set to the music of Nina Simone.
