and new media performance. The Skirball Center is not only a space for NYU

productions and events, but also for performing arts events from around the

world that can bring unique value to the University, Greenwich Village and

the city.

Skirball Center Executive Director, Wiley Hausam expressed his gratitude to

David Parsons and the company for participating in the opening of the new

theater: "The Parsons Dance Company is one of the most delightful. We're

so pleased that they are bringing together these classic pieces and these

beautiful guest artists Angel Corella and Jenifer to Ringer. We know it

will be a very special evening."

In a recent interview David Parsons expressed his gratitude to be invited as

a featured artist: "I am honored and delighted to be part of the official

opening celebration of the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts,

a stimulating addition to New York's rich cultural environment. The dancers

of The Parsons Dance Company are also very excited about this opportunity,

and I am personally gratified to have the international superstar Angel

Corella dance Caught and the elegant, beautiful ballerina, Jenifer Ringer,

perform the duet On A Clear Night with me."
