In commemoration of its new presence in Atlanta, Complexions Contemporary Ballet will also launch its inaugural season at Gwinnett’s Infinite Energy Theater from October 8-10 as the first of many shows all across the country during its upcoming 2015-2016 season.

On a program consisting of four premieres, Complexions continues to lead the way with its unprecedented approach to contemporary ballet. For its inaugural season in Atlanta, the company will premiere STRUM, a world premiere set to the famous songs of Metallica; AND SO IT IS… a work about unrequited love set to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, and Partita #2 - Chaconne; CRYIN’ TO CRY OUT an excerpt inspired by the legendary voice and lyrics of famed Jazz singer Jimmy Scott;and the debut of the company’s Icon Series, an annual new piece dedicated to the artists that continually inspire Complexions. This season, the company pays tribute to Dr. Maya Angelou in a new work, IMPRINT/MAYA featuring a solo performance by Complexions’ own Desmond Richardson. In addition to these new works the company will also include various pieces from the company's 20-year history, including INNERVISIONS, a suite featuring the music of Stevie Wonder. Detailed information on these works is below.

On Friday, October 9th, Complexions will host a special evening to celebrate its introduction to the Atlanta performing arts world. After the performance, join Complexions’ own Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, the entire performing cast, host and famed actress Jane Seymour for an after show champagne reception where you can meet the Complexions Contemporary Ballet team in person. Each ticket is $200 and will include one orchestra seat as well as admission for one to the after show reception held at the Hudgens Center for the Arts inside the Infinite Energy Center.
