There aren’t a ton of obvious parallels between the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and the songs of David Robert Jones (aka David Bowie), but you can connect some dots for yourself on Wednesday when FirstWorks presents Complexions Contemporary Ballet’s evening dedicated to the two. Star Dust is a nine-song suite of Bowie compositions—nearly all presented in their original recorded form—that premiered in Detroit shortly after the gender-futzing musician’s 2016 passing. Bach 25 premiered in California last year, for the company’s 25th season; it’s a “festive, athletic, neoclassical work” featuring violin and cello work composed by J.S. Bach and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, one of his sons.
