Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellow, and Bessie-Award winning choreographer, David Roussève, juxtaposes the intimate romanticism of Nat King Cole standards with the rough-edged, hip-hop-inflected original music of d. Sabela Grimes to redefine the coming-of-age story for the electronic age. Lush, jazz-inflected dancing is leavened by frenetic, angular representations of an African-American, gay, urban teen’s anxious dreams and challenges—visible only through his emotion-laden tweets and text messages, which are projected onto multiple surfaces. Stardust explores the evolving nature of intimacy in our technology-driven, furiously paced world.
