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.

The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.'S Wonderful info • Apr 21 2014 star this tip starred

Very enjoyable. The Carpenter Center is a fantastic location, easy access and parking and a wonderful staff! Picking up the tickets couldn't have been easier, and the reminders from Goldstar were very helpful.
The ballet was excellent! A wonderful blend of talented dancing with a fun and energetic performance, including fun props, that my daughter (6 yrs) was really able to enjoy. Just when she was getting "squirmy" the performance would include something fun and interesting again (like her favorite part the "human alphabet").
So in summary... great location, great facility, terrific seats, and a wonderful performance!! A truly terrific afternoon! Thank you!!
Quotes & Highlights
“The New York Theatre Ballet…turned out to be one of those shows that are so good they seem worth the price of the entire series of five attractions.” —Sacramento Bee
This new one-hour rollicking romp takes the whole family on an antic-filled journey — simple enough for small children, sophisticated enough for the most discerning adult. Inspired by classic nursery rhymes, this tongue-in-cheek, madcap ballet features such beloved characters as Jack and Jill, Miss Muffet, Jack Sprat and his plump wife, Old King Cole, and The Three Blind Mice.
Set design is by Derek Stenborg and costumes are by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the Metropolitan Opera’s resident costume designer. The music, an original work created for this production, is composed by Vladimir Shinov.
Created by Keith Michael, choreographer of NYTB’s delightful, high-spirited Alice-in-Wonderland Follies.
