Stephen Petronio Company presents its most ambitious season of Bloodlines, a five-year autobiographical project that not only honors the lineage of American postmodern dance, but also traces the influences and impulses that have shaped choreographer Stephen Petronio, an artist uniquely positioned to preserve this postmodern tradition. The program includes a world premiere by Petronio alongside works by postmodern masters. To date, the company has restaged works by Cunningham, Trisha Brown, Anna Halprin, Yvonne Rainer, and Steve Paxton.
Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, Stephen Petronio is widely regarded as one of the leading dance-makers of his generation. New music, visual art and fashion collide in his dances, producing powerfully modern landscapes for the senses. Founded in 1984, Stephen Petronio Company has performed in 26 countries throughout the world, including over 35 New York City engagements. www.Petron.io
