Parsons Dance

Description

Parsons Dance returns to The Joyce with its blend of sexy athleticism and stunning ensemble work for the New York premiere of Finding Center, David Parsons’ collaboration with visual artist Rita Blitt. Also on the program: a world premiere by Katarzyna Skarpetowska exploring the connection of an eastern European childhood juxtaposed with the urban folklore of adolescence in NYC, and Caught, the stroboscopic masterwork that continues to wow audiences around the world. Four family friendly matinees will feature repertory for dance fans of all ages and a special opportunity to meet the dancers. “This is a ‘dance your heart out’ (at all times, no excuses) kind of enterprise.” The New York Times
