Though the company has recently announced plans for an expansion to Atlanta, Complexions will be kicking off their 21st season in NYC, performing three programs for two weeks in Chelsea. Including five premieres–ranging from the music of Metallica to the poetry of Maya Angelou to a re-staging of William Forsythe’s APPROXIMATE SONATA–this is an event fans of contemporary ballet will not want to miss.
