Stephen Petronio Company will present #LoveSpreadsFaster Virtual Event
Stephen Petronio Company
On May 29 at 6pm, Stephen Petronio Company will present #LoveSpreadsFaster, a virtual event featuring the premiere of #GimmeShelter, a new full-company video work by Petronio created via Zoom in collaboration with and dedicated to his sheltering-in-place dancers. Edited by Blake Martin, #GimmeShelter embraces the limitations of physical space along with the fear and anxiety of the present moment. Petronio draws on his DIY aesthetic from the early 1980s to create a new work that yearns for human connection at a time when the world insists we remain apart.
#LoveSpreadsFaster will also feature the Danse Sacrale solo excerpt from Full Half Wrong, Petronio’s 1993 take on Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Performed by Jaqlin Medlock, the work’s main solo casts women into primary focus by taking the idea of the “Virgin’s Sacrifice” and flipping it into an act of female empowerment. #LoveSpreadsFaster will be available online until June 5 at 10AM.
*THE RECORDED LIVE EVENT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING UNTIL JUNE 5 AT 10AM.
