“…iconoclastic and iconic, subversive, game changing, elegant, with just a gleam of something slightly depraved…” – Nancy Dalva, The Brooklyn Rail

 

A stunning portrait of a life lived on the edge, Confessions of a Motion Addict vividly captures Stephen Petronio’s journey from a rose-colored, small town childhood to his tumultuous awakening to a world of art, sex, and the dangerous compulsions that often haunt artists of every genre.

 

"Like his choreography, Petronio's words tumble onto the page with a speed and sensuality that is just this side of illicit. What a rush!" - Wendy Perron, former Editor-in-Chief, Dance Magazine

“Petronio takes bold ownership of his demons and presents a raw portrait of the artist as an unapologetic thrill-seeker.” - Brian Schaefer, OUT
