Stardust @ CSULB 09/27/14


"Stardust"—the latest piece by Alpert, 'Bessie', and Horton award-winning choreographer David Roussève—is a coming of age story for the Twitter generation. Weaving storytelling, movement, and technology, "Stardust" reveals the inner struggle of a gay African-American teenager who only ‘appears’ through a series of unanswered text messages. Nonstop, full-throttle dance unleashes his emotional states, from despair to his unexpected transformation.

Named “One of the Best Dance Performances of 2013" by the LA Times for its Avant Premiere performances, this is the first time “Stardust” will be performed in the southland as a completed work.
