Transcript I Ft T A ■ IM IVI DANCE/lrompage! hope given by a familial history (whose ancestral voices guide him through the transition from life to life renewed). Rousseves' view of the hereafter is expect- edly somewhat unusual, more reminiscent of a suburban barbecue than of harps and present the 1990 work Colored Children Flyin" By. Even though this work is about Rousseve's grandmother, it is certainly oddly autobiographical — Rousseve laughingly recounts, "I'm the only person I know that has become my own grandmother." Through her, Rousseve conveys his own experiences growing up south of the Mason- Bunnies "Hopping" to Raise Thousands for Local Charities ethereal clouds. Much of the action and wording is carried by Rousseve alone and his powerful delivery brings childhood scenes to life. Anna Kisselgoff, dance critic for the New York Times calls REALITY "Shattering dance theater, full of fearless physicality wilh music exquisitely integrated into the stage action — this show packs an authentically emotional whalop.." Simplicity helps to distill the message of REALITY to its essence. Rousseve's script that accompanies the movement (or does the movement accompany the script?) will not win any literary prizes, but suffers no diminution from ils brevity Rather than rely on design or effects for impact, Whispers of Angels depends on the direct heart to heart connection of creator and audience. Costumes (and the complete lack of them) and sets provide the audience with mere reference points, leaving each of us to fill in our own specifics of time, place, and event. In addition to Whispers creator/choreographer and his seven dancer/performers will Dixon line. This is not some polite retelling of a kindly black sage, but a brutal true-life depiction of a difnculi life during a difficult time. Colored Children Flyin' By examines several experiences of an elderly Creole woman, Thelma Arceneaux, and juxtaposes them with those of contemporary urban America. With musical accompaniment as classically sublime as Saint-Saens' The Swan and as radical as 'Public Enemy,' Colored Children Flyin' By portrays both beauty and brutality. David Rousseve and his company have received worldwide acclaim for their accessible, yet innovative approach to dance/theater. Audiences from Birmingham to Brazil have applauded his experimental style, one that enables us to explore emotional situations, and confront aspects of our own REALITY — elements we examine far too infrequendy. For tickets to David Rousseve/REALITY are available by calling 227-ARTS or 1-800- 227-ARTS. Happy Easter from The Houston Vcicc It's time once again to celebrate the inaugural event of the spring social season for Houston's Gay & Lesbian Community.
