Event Description

Avant-Premiere of "Stardust"


Radar L.A. Festival 2013


An International Festival of Contemporary Theater


Alpert Award-winning director-choreographer David Roussève's dance-driven works weave storytelling and movement into indelible performances at the intersection of dance and theater. His latest, Stardust, is a coming of age story for the Twitter generation, in which the central character never makes a physical appearance. Present only in unanswered texts projected on multiple screens, a gay African-American teenager reaches out with growing urgency as the dark realities of his life become apparent. On stage the dancing unleashes a full-bodied expression of emotional states that contrast the intimate romanticism of Nat King Cole with the rough edges of original hip-hop inflected music by d. Sabela grimes, while Stardust plays out against Cari Ann Shim Sham's* immersive video imagery.
