"The Parsons Dance Company" DVD features seven separate pieces that consist of two different styles of video translation.
The first three works on the disc, "Fine Dining", "Brothers" and "Reflections of Four", take full advantage of the capability of video as a recording medium. These pieces incorporate set design, editing, composition and lighting that would be difficult to translate into a live theater setting.
The last four works, "Caught", "Scrutiny", "The Envelope" and "Nascimento" are performed on a more or less traditional dance stage, with minimal set design and a surreal lighting sensibility. These four works appear to proceed as live events, with the camera work and editing used mostly to support documentation of the stage choreography.
Each of the seven pieces is introduced by David Parsons and a short verbal portrait of the principle dancers, in the Parsons Company, is presented towards the end of the disc.
The music chosen for the dances is by David Linton, Igor Stravinsky, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Robert Fripp, Michael Raye, Gioacchino Rossini and Milton Nascimento.Read more ›
