PREVIEW: Complex Rhythms

The University of Michigan Department of Dance will present their annual concert, Complex Rhythms, from February 7-10 at the Power Center for the Performing Arts. It feature the re-staging of a “noted twentieth-century masterpiece,” as well as “three new creations.”

Included in this year’s works is Shelter, an “unsentimental commentary about homelessness and disenfranchisement” that was created in 1988 by Urban Bush Women founder Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. Additionally, professor of dance Bill DeYoung sets a new work to Leonard Bernstein’s “Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs” in commemoration of Bernstein’s 100th birthday.

Grab a Passport to the Arts and take it to the Michigan League Ticket Office for a free ticket to this not-to-be-missed event! Showtimes include February 7th at 7:30 pm, February 8th and 9th at 8pm, and February 10th at 2pm.
