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.

This was a wonderful evening of thoughtful, beautiful, humorous, evocative movement pieces. Everyone I talked to in the audience was moved. Lydia Zimmer's piece was breath taking in its sensitivity, Qualia explored a range of human desires with intensity and lovely dancing. Anne and Jeff Grimaldo's witty sensibility spark curiosity and delight.
