Parsons Dance Family Matinee: Parsons Dance

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Parsons Dance returns to The Joyce with four dazzling new works highlighting the company’s 36-year history of delighting audiences. Highlighting the two-week run are two David Parsons premieres: The Road, set to Peace Train, Trouble, and more iconic songs by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Yusuf/Cat Stevens; and Balance of Power, a solo created for the “near perfect” (The New York Times) Parsons dancer Zoey Anderson, in collaboration with percussionist Giancarlo de Trizio, who performs live. Also on tap are two world premieres: Past Tense, an evocative full company work by BalletX co-founder Matthew Neenan, and Chanel DaSilva’s On The Other Side, performed live to a bold score composed by Cristina Spinei. Rounding out the roster are signature Parsons pieces like the always amazing Caught.
