"Part of my artistic agenda is to create a dialogue with
as many communities and audiences aspossible, both on and
off the stage by using African American culture to speak to
universal issues of the heart."
–David Roussève

Community Engagement

Building an informed and involved public audience for contemporary performance is central to the work of David Roussève and his company.  Roussève has an extraordinary breadth and depth of experience in planning and conducting educational and engagement activities with people of many ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. Among others, Roussève and the company have worked with the women, at-risk-youth, HIV/AIDS, LGBT, elderly, and African American communities.   As Professor of Choreography in the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance (serving as Chair from 2003-2006), he is fully engaged in a global conversation about the role of artists and art in the survival of the human spirit.

With Stardust the company is eager to work collaboratively with presenters in designing activities that resonate with the multi-layered, socially-poignant themes of  the work, while addressing the needs of local communities.
