Complexions Contemporary Ballet
Pairs of dancers splinter and spin like windmills, sound mixes with silence, chaos and symmetry prove interrelated—such is the experience of a Complexions performance. The choreography is post-Balanchinean, reflecting a postmodern perspective that focuses on the possibilities of movement. Instead of tackling philosophic issues or political agendas, the pieces dwell on the grace of the body, setting innovative moves to everything from classical music to modern pop hits.
Behind these dazzling displays are artistic directors Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, who have amassed sparkling credentials over the years with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, The Joffrey Ballet, So You Think You Can Dance, and even Michael Jackson. But amid this success, Dwight and Desmond have always felt another pull: that of their own artistic instincts. In 1994, they answered this call by founding Complexions Contemporary Ballet. In reveling in juxtaposition and fluidity, exploring the evolution of their art form, and occupying esteemed international venues with performances lauded by The New York Times, Complexions has ensnared imaginations across the globe.
Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts
Built in 1928, Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
