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.
