Using dance, video, images and text, world renowned contemporary choreographer David Roussève creates a new coming-of-age story for the Twitter generation with his latest commissioned work, Stardust. A touring show performed by Roussève's long-running multicultural dance theatre troupe, REALITY, Stardust is a glimpse into the life of a gay African-American teenager who appears only through his unanswered texts, which are projected on screen. Dancers weave jazz-inflected movements with storytelling techniques around the texts to create an immersive experience unlike any other that explores the evolving nature of intimacy in our technology-driven world.

Given that the works were by 4 vastly different choreographers, the quality was uneven. In most cases, though, the dancers were pretty terrific. My feeling is that the weak point is the theatre itself -- sound was bad, spoken words unintelligible and there was no air conditioning to speak of and no air circulation in the mezz.

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Ballet
The debut of Los Angeles Ballet on December 2, 2006, was met with standing ovations and critical acclaim. “A Company is Born”, declared LA Times dance critic Lewis Segal in his December 4, 2006 review. “… there’s plenty of promise in the homegrown production by company artistic directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary.”
Los Angeles Ballet’s original production of The Nutcracker reflects the city in which it is based. It introduced the first of many seasons of ballet made fresh, alluring, and entertaining. With choreography by Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary and set design by LA designer and illustrator Catherine Kanner, the production is the first to honor the company’s mission to establish an artistic collaboration that invites all genres to participate. Choreographers, composers, dancers, musicians, and set, costume and lighting designers, come together in Los Angeles Ballet for a new era of performing arts innovation.
World-class dance has come home to Los Angeles.
