Doug Varone & Dancers strive to tell emotionally resonant stories through original, technically complex modern-dance pieces. During their 25th anniversary tour, the graceful, athletic bodies of the troupe's eight dancers execute their new piece, Carrugi, in a flurry of agile limbs, nimble leaps, and dramatic Running Mans alongside the crowd favorite Rise, which they’ve performed since 1993. Troupe founder Doug Varone also will treat audience members to an informative session on his creative process, sharing insight about his inspirations and choreography.
Headed by So You Think You Can Dance veterans Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions Contemporary Ballet has blended classical and modern dance styles from around the world into dazzling routines for more than 15 years. Armed with a repertoire of dozens of custom pieces, Complexions' dancers showcase the expressive possibilities of the human body more effectively than live tattooing competitions.
