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

This song-and-dance production was a creative and entertaining adaptation of the children's book. There are several plot and character elaborations added to the simple story line. Our kids (<5 years old) loved it. It also maintained the interests of the adults in our party.
Quotes & Highlights
See a video preview of Strega Nona on YouTube.
Based on the award-winning and much-loved children’s book by Tomie dePaola, Strega Nona comes to the stage in the musical tale of a kindly witch who cures the ills of her tiny Italian village. When she hires Big Anthony to help out with chores, Strega Nona warns him not to mess with her magical pasta pot, but he touches it anyway. When Anthony is to his ears in pasta (literally), can Strega Nona save the day?
