Open Spaces: David Rousseve - Halfway to Dawn

Classical Dance
Choreographer, writer, director and filmmaker Roussève’s newest dance piece is Halfway to Dawn: The Strayhorn Project, exploring the arranger and composer considered to be Duke Ellington’s most vital collaborator. Although essential to jazz history, Strayhorn’s decision to live openly as a gay man meant that his public profile had to be as non-existent as possible. Halfway to Dawn seeks to capture the ‘truth’ of Strayhorn’s life by redefining ‘biography’ at the intersection of fact, conjecture, comment, and fantasy, powered by Strayhorn’s wildly diverse music.
