Dance Series Day 3: Parson’s Caught

June 13, 2009

If I was to pick out the one singular dance performance I’ve seen that’s stuck with me for years, it would be Parson Dance Company‘s “Caught”.  In this video excerpt, you’ll see David Parsons himself performing.  The first half is more lyrical in nature, but it picks up about halfway through.  What is hard to fathom about this performance is that the artist is wearing a flash belt and each time they leap into the air they hit the button and activate a strobe.  So what the audience perceives is a dancer constantly in the air for what seems like an unbelievable amount of time.  It took my breath away in person, it was so incredible!  The video doesn’t do it justice….

If you like the excerpt, go look up the full version on Youtube.  Parson’s is out of New York and I’ve posted the link to their website above so you can check out their touring schedule.  And so ends the 3 Day Dance Series.  I hope you enjoyed it!
