Join the Friends of the Avenue of the Arts Theater Club to see NextMove Dance presents Parsons Dance
Known for its athletic, popular, up lifting works and virtuoso dancers, Parsons Dance brings a world premiere fusing live dancers and highly sophisticated robotic drones. Created in collaboration with engineers from the ExCITe Center at Drexel University, artistic director/choreographer David Parsons’ newest creation explores the evolution of man and machine. The program includes three additional works choreographed by Parsons. Finding Center 2015, a Philadelphia premiere, is an exuberant and highly musical work with projections by visual artist Rita Blitt. Set to the songs of the Dave Matthews Band, DMB 2005 is a rollicking show-stopper. Caught 1982 is Parsons stroboscopic masterpiece. Rounding out the concert is the Philadelphia premiere of Almah 2015 choreographed by Katarzyna Skarpetowska, lead Parsons’ dancer from 1999-2006 and listed by Dance Magazine as “One of the 25 to watch” in 2016.
