David Roussève’s Stardust is Being Presented at University of Washington


Stardust, David Roussève’s “startling – and stunning” technology laden work, will be performed by his company David Roussève/REALITY on November 20th-22nd as part of University of Washington’s World Series. Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a revelation, David Roussève (Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellow, and Bessie-Award winning choreographer) taps into the life of a gay, African American, urban teenager utilizing both Nat King Cole standards and the hip hop noted music of D. Sabela Grimes to “redefine the coming-of-age story for the electronic age.” Performances are at 8pm from November 20th-22nd at University of Washington’s Meany Hall for the Performing Arts.

“Mr. Roussève’s lush, circular movement physicalizes the sparring dimensions of Junior’s psyche. At any point, any one of his appealing dancers could be our protagonist. (So could Mr. Roussève, who dances briefly, a master of his own voluminous choreography.)” -The New York Times
