Some people attend a Parsons Dance show just to see Caught; and who can blame them? The piece, which appears on the program when Parsons plays the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts beginning February 27, is a striking work that creates the fabulous illusion of a dancer soaring through space.

It’s done with blazing strobe lights, and even though you know it’s a trick you can’t help but be awed by the ingenuity on display.

Caught is a guaranteed crowd pleaser, and because it takes less than six minutes to perform, there’s plenty of room on the program for additional showmanship. This presentation includes two Philadelphia premiers and a couple more works, all of which demonstrate why the company is in high demand around the world.

The full scope of works here dazzle the eye with intricate patterns, intimate shadow play, whimsical humor and of course wonderfully dynamic dance.

Entertaining and exuberant, playful and poignant, Parsons Dance is well worth catching.
