David Roussève/REALITY

Saturday, April 13, 2019, 7:30 PM

Halfway to Dawn

Written, choreographed and directed by David Roussève and performed by his diverse nine-member company REALITY, Halfway to Dawn is a vibrant multi-media dance/theater work. The core is African-American composer Billy Strayhorn’s music, interpreted through a dynamic dance vocabulary that melds jazz, modern/postmodern and social dance. To a lush soundtrack of famous Strayhorn recordings from the 1940s-50s, a complex portrait of this remarkably private artist emerges, touching on themes of fame, privacy, gay identity and the artist’s role as activist.

All are welcome to stay in the theater after the performance for a post-show Q&A with David Roussève
