In New Mexico, you know autumn is coming when you smell the chile roasting. The bitter aroma rises from street corners and grocery store parking lots, where spicy green peppers plucked during the September harvest are blistered to perfection in cages cranked over an open flame. We buy them by the sack and put them in or on nearly everything we eat: burritos and tamales, of course, but also hamburgers, pizzas, pastas and pies.

David Parsons' in-progress dance piece, "EK90," officially celebrates the 90th birthday of a world-renowned artist. But to Parsons, it represents the birth of a movement - one that's grown fitfully over the years but now looks to have more momentum than ever. Last year, photographer Jack Shear commissioned a piece from Parsons in honor of his longtime partner, Ellsworth Kelly. With gay people winning battles in the United States and abroad, the topic came easily enough. "EK90," which Parsons Dance will perform Thursday and Friday at the Laguna Dance Festival, tells a coming-of-age story of a boy and a girl who eschew traditional gender roles.
