Complexions Contemporary Ballet to Perform at Wilkins Theatre, 5/2
Complexions Contemporary Ballet will perform the New Jersey premiere of Innervisions set to the music of Stevie Wonder at Kean University's Wilkins Theatre on Saturday, May 2 at 7:30 p.m. Founded in 1994 by two former Alvin Ailey members, Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden, Complexions' groundbreaking mix of methods, styles, cultures has created an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement over the past decade-and-a-half.
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.
Together, Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson have created in Complexions an institution that embodies its historical moment, a sanctuary where those passionate about dance can celebrate its past while simultaneously building its future. In the 15 years since its inception, the company has born witness to a world that is becoming more fluid, more changeable, and more culturally interconnected than ever before-in other words, a world that is becoming more and more like Complexions itself.
