Parsons Dance Will Present Two New Works at The Joyce Theater, 1/15-27

Katarzyna Skarpetowska, last season's guest choreographer and former Parsons' dancer, will explore her Polish roots in a World Premiere entitled Black Flowers featuring the music of Poland's greatest composer, Frédéric Chopin. Six dancers will guide the audience through a mystic lamentation and a mourning ritual in which women always appear in a universally sacred trio. Her 2012 commission proved a major hit with Joyce audiences, and was described in The New York Times as "A dance with shadows in it, mysteries . . . original . . . refreshing . . . made you think."

The program also includes David Parsons' 2005 Mozart-inspired work, Wolfgang; ensemble classic, In The End, with music by Dave Matthews Band, and David Parsons' stroboscopic masterwork, Caught.
