Family Matinee: Complexions Contemporary Ballet at The Joyce Theater

Family Matinee: Complexions Contemporary Ballet

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

COMPLEXIONS Contemporary Ballet returns to celebrate its 28th Anniversary Season. Under the direction of co-founding Artistic Directors Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, the company is "forging a path for what ballet can be instead of what it has historically been" (The Guardian). Rhoden and Richardson have curated an eclectic offering featuring the world premiere of Rhoden's newest work, Endgame. Set to an original soundscape of manipulated rhythms, string patterns, and voices, the work conjures a world that we recognize today, juxtaposed against one that is not yet a reality. Program highlights also include Rhoden's critically acclaimed, Snatched Back from the Edges, a stirring and uplifting testament to the indelible human spirit set to a diverse soundtrack featuring spoken word and music ranging from Chopin to Shirley Cesar; and the company premiere of a pas de deux from William Forsythe's Slingerland.
