Complexions Contemporary Ballet

Star Dust - From Bach to Bowie

Mar 22, 2022

Combining technical precision, power and passion, Complexions Contemporary Ballet 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 several times on the hit show So You Think You Can Dance?

Star Dust – From Bach to Bowie is a celebration of dance and music that withstands the test of time. In the first act, Bach 25, the company shows the full range of its abilities to the music of the great baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach; Pieces by his son Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach complete the multi-layered sound while exploring the chemistry within relationships that create harmony and discord.
Then, as a love letter to David Bowie, the dancers perform to hits like "Heroes," " Space Oddity" and "Young Americans," a performance as colorful and brilliant as Bowie himself was. In combination with costumes, make-up and lighting design, the choreography takes Bowie fans into the fascinating cosmos of the pop icon.

"...spellbinding..." —Billboard

“...sensationally, jaw-droppingly clear that we live in the age of the super-dancer, at a time when technical virtuosity is being redefined as an expressive state...” —Dance Magazine
