March has been incredibly active. After a seven-week tour through Italy, the company returned to the studio in New York City to restage two pieces that are highlights of the upcoming Joyce season. While rehearsals were happening, David was in Kansas City creating a new piece for Kansas City Ballet. And now, the company is preparing for appearances in Oklahoma City, OK Park City, UT, and Portland, OR. All this happens before the April 8 Gala, which is certain to be a whopping good time!

Parsons Work Set on Kansas City Ballet To Make Its World Premiere
Throughout March, David has been rehearsing "Play for Love," his new work commissioned by the Kansas City Ballet. The compelling piece created for more than twenty dancersfeatures some of Shakespeare’s most celebrated characters. Showcasing the trials, tribulations, and triumph of love, this fanciful romp through the battle of the sexes is set to a full range of classical works.
We are thrilled that "Play for Love" will be appearing alongside works by Twyla Tharp and William Forsythe. If you happen to be in Kansas City from May 10 through 19, come to the Kaufman Center for the Arts to experience this fabulous program. If you can’t make it, look for Play for Love next season when it is incorporated into the Parsons Dance repertory.
