Los Angeles audiences will experience the brilliance of David Bowie like never before with StarDust, Complexions Contemporary Ballet’s revelatory tribute to the late icon, taking place at The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion from April 20 – 22, 2018. Part of the 15th season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center (Dance at The Music Center), this production will feature many of the singer’s most beloved hits and glam rock-inspired costumes designed by Christine Darch.
Choreographer and Complexions Artistic Director Dwight Rhoden started conceptualizing a tribute to Bowie long before the rock star’s death on January 10, 2016. Essentially, StarDust is Rhoden’s love letter to Bowie, whose music served as a backdrop to Rhoden’s adolescent years, and whose artistry continues to be a beacon of inspiration. Nine Bowie songs form the score to StarDust, including “Lazarus,” “Changes,” “Life on Mars,” “Space Oddity,” “Young Americans” and more. Billboard notes the “spellbinding” production “…is a must – whether you think you enjoy the ballet or not.” “If there could ever be a tribute as virtuosic and inspiring as Bowie himself, this may very well be it,” said Rachel Moore, president and CEO of The Music Center.
