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

Hilarious! How they can take a tragedy and make me laugh is fantastic! Great voices and physical comedy, in addition to zingy one-liners. Definitely not for children, however. My third Troubies show, always a joy to watch. Looking forward to...continued
The Troubies return with the Maternal Musical that mashes up Sophocles’ “Oedipus the King” with the music of the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley. Oedipus has a Burning Love and he Can’t Help Falling in Love with his Mama. So Don’t Be Cruel and miss this musical parody by the theater company the Los Angeles Times calls “The Masters of Musical Spoofery.”
