Stephen Petronio Company at The Joyce Theater
Stephen Petronio Company
Stephen Petronio Company offers this season as a call for connection and hope. Initially conceived as a moving meditation filmed during the Covid-19 lockdown, New New Prayer For Now bursts onto the stage as a newly completed world premiere. A bold and visceral dialogue between bodies, space and the viewer's eye, this work is a collaboration with composer/performance artist Monstah Black, creating music based on the treasured songs ‘Balm in Gilead’ and 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' recorded with The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC), under the direction of Francisco Nuñez.
The company also brings a re-staging of Petronio's Bloom (2006), a joyful and iconic collaboration with Rufus Wainwright singing compositions based on the poetry of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson, featuring a live performance by the Young People's Chorus of New York City.
Rounding out the program is a Bloodlines nod to Petronio’s formidable lineage with a re-staging of Trisha Brown’s Group Primary Accumulation (1973), a quietly thrilling gestural masterpiece in Brown’s signature style.
