Complexions Contemporary Ballet Headed to Harris Center, 10/24-25
Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden, along with their New York City-based company of dance thoroughbreds have awakened audiences around the world to a new, exciting genre that combines the best of athleticism, lyricism, and technical training and experience. Now America's original multi-cultural Dance Company brings its passion to Harris Center/Three Stages.
It is artistic directors/founders Richardson and Rhoden's lifelong appreciation for the artistic and aesthetic appeal of the multicultural that forms the cornerstone of Complexions Contemporary Ballet's singular approach to reinventing dance. Founded by the two former Alvin Ailey members in 1994, Complexions' groundbreaking mix of methods, styles, cultures has created an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement over the past years.
Complexions Contemporary Ballet will perform on Thursday, October 24, 2013; 7:30 pm and Friday, October 25, 2013; 8 pm. Tickets are priced at $21-$34; Premium $45;
Students with ID $12. Tickets are available online at www.harriscenter.net or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street.
The company's foremost innovation is that dance should be about removing boundaries, not reinforcing them. Whether it be the limiting traditions of a single style, period, venue, or culture, Complexions transcends them all, creating an open, continually evolving form of dance that reflects the movement of our world-and all its constituent cultures-as an interrelated whole.
