Led by dance icons Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions Contemporary Ballet has awakened audiences to a new, exciting genre with their singular approach of reinventing dance and contemporary ballet. WOKE is a physical reaction to the daily news. Set to music by Kendrick Lamar, Logic, Drake, Diplo and others, WOKE is a bold and dynamic one-act ballet featuring the full company that examines our humanity in conjunction with the enlightened awareness of today’s generation. Rock meets ballet in LOVE ROCKS, with music by GRAMMY® Award-winning singer-songwriter Lenny Kravitz, whose retro musical style lays a foundation for passionate storytelling through edgy, athletic and theatrical movement.
During the Complexions residency, The Music Center will collaborate with Rhoden and Richardson, along with spoken word artist Terrell Lewis, to co-host a poetry slam and dance event on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center. More information will be announced at a later date.
