Lenfest Center/Keller Theatre
Founders Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden, along with their New York City-based company of dance thoroughbreds, have awakened audiences to a new, exciting genre that combines the best of athleticism, lyricism, and technical training and experience. Complexions' groundbreaking mix of methods, styles, and cultures has created an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement over the past decade-and-a-half. 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 reflecting the movement of our world--and all its constituent cultures--as an interrelated whole.
Embracing diversity with 16 dancers of different ethnic and dance backgrounds, this company is pure dance, pure excitement.
