Halfway to Dawn-

David Rousseve’s “Halfway to Dawn” was a fascinating performance art dance piece about Billy Strayhorn. He was an openly gay African-American who collaborated with Duke Ellington. This surprising revelation is due to Strayhorn not having any copyright protection. The dance troupe is up to the task of bringing the essence of Strayhorn’s music to the Redcat stage in Los Angeles. Hopefully it will tour and grace your city. With scenic projections and startling choreography this piece throws you into Strayhorn’s world.
