Complexions Contemporary Ballet

Friday & Saturday,
January 19 & 20, 2024 | 8 p.m.

Complexions was founded in 1994 by Master Choreographer Dwight Rhoden and the legendary Desmond Richardson with a singular approach to reinventing dance through a groundbreaking mix of methods, styles, and cultures. 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, having presented an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement on 5-continents, over 20-countries, to over 20-million TV viewers and to over 300,000 people in live shows. Complexions is poised to continue its mission to bring unity to the world one dance at a time.

Grupo Corpo: Direct from Brazil

Friday & Saturday,
February 23 & 24, 2024 | 8 p.m.

When you see GRUPO CORPO dancing, it's as if the questions of transit between nature and culture were being well answered. They are the different Brazils, the past, and the future, the erudite and the popular, the foreign heritage and the local color, the urban and the suburban, all at the same time being resolved as art. Brazilian art. 

 


Art of the world. Today, having created more than 40 choreographies, the contemporary dance company from Minas Gerais performs in places as different as Iceland and South Korea, the United States and Lebanon, Italy, and Singapore, Holland and Israel, France and Japan, Canada, and Mexico.

Paul Taylor Dance Company

Friday & Saturday,
March 15 & 16, 2024 | 8 p.m.

Transforming the landscape of modern dance since 1954. Dancemaker Paul Taylor (1930-2018) first presented his choreography with five other dancers in Manhattan on May 30, 1954.  That modest performance marked the beginning of a profound, uninterrupted creative output that shaped the future of modern American dance and continues to this day.

 


 

Since its earliest days, the Paul Taylor Dance Company has toured venues throughout the United States and around the globe, from college campuses and rural towns to the world’s leading opera houses and performing arts centers in North and South America, China, Far East, Great Britain, Eastern and Western Europe, Scandinavia, Africa, India, and the Middle East. “ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING, INNOVATIVE, AND DELIGHTFUL DANCE COMPANIES IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.” —The New York Times
