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.

9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

A great evening. This premiere performance was a wonderful window to Mexican history via music, song and dance. Production was first rate, with excellent performers, dancers, musicians and singers. This deserves a larger audience and I would love to see it shown to all K-12 kids (particularly latinos).

Strongly influenced by the Afro Caribbean rhythms from Veracruz, Mexico, Un Zapateado Chicano explores Gema Sandoval’s Chicano voice in dance. In direct opposition to the very symmetrical sounds of traditional Mexican folk music, the syncopated sounds of Veracruz provide the inspiration for the rhythms that Floricanto explores in this two hour production where dancers become part of the music by establishing percussive dialogues with musicians and, together, explore the connections that exist in the rhythms of our global cultures.
