The Parsons Dance Company

Fri., April 1, 2005, 8 pm
Sat., April 2, 2005, 8 pm

One of the hottest tickets in modern dance, this dance troupe was founded in 1987 by the legendary dancer and choreographer David Parsons, who some people consider an heir to Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov. Their piece, Caught, includes 90 jumps to the flash of a strobe light. The dancer leaps into the air when the light is on and lands when it is off, simulating flight and creating a not-to-be-missed event.

“…The Parsons Dance Company has thrilled audiences with exuberantly witty, high-energy, athletic works created with a keen eye for the theatrical and a sure sense of entertainment.” – Karen Campbell, Boston Herald

“[Carolyn Dorfman’s] exploration in dance of the human experience both reflects and engenders a profound humanity. Because her dances are about people and life experience, often moving from the autobiographical to the universal, they hold immediate appeal.” – The New York Times
