From the New York Times:
In 1982, David Parsons made his greatest choreographic discovery: He invented a way for a dancer to fly.
“Caught,” his signature work that stars a soloist soaring through the air and a strobe light, may last only about five minutes. But this seemingly simple recipe of light and movement results in pure exhilaration. The piece is part of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s current season at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Robert Battle, Ailey’s artistic director, is a former member of Parsons Dance.
