Complexions, Photography by Jae Man Joo New York City, November 2, 2009 – Complexions Contemporary Ballet Artistic Directors and Co-Founders Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson have announced the official programming for the company’s landmark 15th anniversary season at The Joyce Theater, entitled Love Sweat and Tears, taking place November 17-29, 2009.

Over the past fifteen years, Dwight and Desmond have created in Complexions an institution that embodies its historical moment, a sanctuary where those passionate about dance can celebrate its past while simultaneously building its future. Aptly, this year’s three distinct programs celebrate the company’s versatility with an exhilarating mixture of old and new. With four exciting and relevant premieres that explore the myriad challenges of a world in transition, the fall Complexions season tackles everything from politics, war and technology to identity, uncertainty, hope and the creative process itself.
