Hail the Stars and Stripes: Stephen Petronio

Stephen Petronio, one of the leading dance-makers of his generation, returns to White Bird for a record 7th time with dance that uniquely merges new music, visual art, and fashion, producing powerfully modern landscapes for the senses. In 2014 Stephen founded Bloodlines, to pay tribute to the masters of American postmodern dance who have strongly influenced him. Featured in White Bird’s program will be new and retrospective work by Petronio as well as a series of chamber works by Yvonne Rainer.

New York Times reviewed Bloodlines, calling Petronio “a bad boy made good… he developed a brand of gender-bending modern dance that seemed fashionably advanced in its views of society and its taste in music and design.” Read the full article here. 

Stephen Petronio Company performs at the Newmark Theatre, April 5-7 at 7:30pm. Tickets available here.
