Dance Celebration–Parsons Dance
October 14, 2008, Volume 55, No. 8



Parsons Dance comes to campus this week with performances October 16-18 at the Zellerbach Theatre, Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. David Parsons, once a celebrated dancer with Paul Taylor, has emerged as a major American dancemaker, recognized for his “accessible, high energy works that are filled with humor, creative partnering, and sizzling sensuality. While his dancers and choreography are easy on the eye, Parsons has already created contemporary classics that have found their way into the repertory of many other companies.” First introduced to Dance Celebration in 1986, the company has become a favorite, returning often. It has been three years since their last visit to Penn, and there are new works to see, as well as strobe lights catching a dancer midair (left) in Caught. For tickets, see www.pennpresents.org.
