Parsons Dance returns to PS21's Chatham Dance Festival with its stunning ensemble work and virtuosic technique.
Last summer PS21’s audiences saw Almah, Kate Skarpetowksa’s new work, in development during open rehearsals. This year they will now have an opportunity to see the completed work, which has an original score by Ljova and premiered at the Joyce Theater in January 2016.
It explores the connection of an eastern European childhood juxtaposed with the urban folklore of adolescence in NYC. Also on the program will be David Parsons Union and his stroboscopic masterwork Caught.
Artistic Director David Parsons founded Parsons Dance in 1985 and the company returns for its eleventh season performing at PS21 in Chatham for performances of September 2nd and 3rd. David Parsons joins us along with Judy Grunberg from PS 21.
