A “dance your heart out…kind of enterprise” (The New York Times), Parsons Dance dedicates its 2019 Joyce season to master choreographer Paul Taylor and pays tribute to him in the staging of Runes, a mesmerizing work performed by David Parsons in 1981 during his time as a member of Paul Taylor Dance Company. Also on tap is the New York premiere of Trey McIntyre’s Eight Women. Set to music by Aretha Franklin, this piece explores what McIntyre describes as “the truest possible part of the woman in every person.” Completing the program are three cherished Parsons works—Round My World, Nascimento, and Caught.
