A Partly Classical, Partly Modernist Life in Dance: In Conversation with Dwight Rhoden
Tulsa Ballet gets its new season underway this evening at 8pm (Friday the 11th) with an all-new, three-part "Creations in Studio K" program. This show will feature world-premiere pieces from Jorma Elo (resident choreographer for Boston Ballet), Dwight Rhoden (artistic director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet), and Tulsa Ballet resident choreographer Ma Cong. Performances will happen September 11th through the 20th in Tulsa Ballet's 300-seat Studio K Theater. Rhoden is our guest today; he tells about the work that he's newly created for the Tulsa Ballet -- and about where and when he decided to pursue professional dancing, how he co-founded the Complexions company some two decades ago, why he has a special fondness for choreographing the music of Bach, and more. Please note that you can learn more about the new "Creations in Studio K" program here.
