1982 is the year that stands out on the Parsons Dance program. As well it might: the company is celebrating its beginnings with a 30th anniversary season at the Joyce Theater. Two of the program’s most impressive works come from that year. Brothers is a high-spirited work for two male dancers, who compete while trying to imitate one another. Caught is a party piece, in which a strobe-lit dancer appears to glide above the stage. It is like watching a zoetrope, and it is difficult not to be won over by it, especially as performed by Clifton Brown of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, who danced on the opening night. Among the newer pieces are Nascimento Novo and a premiere, Introduction, both of which are bigger ensemble dances.
