Stephen Petronio Company

Leading dance-maker Stephen Petronio brings his award-winning company to the Zankel stage fresh from their international tour with DanceMotion USA and their season at The Joyce Theater.   

June 15, 2017, 7:30 pm, Arthur Zankel Music Center
Admission:  $15 adults, $7 seniors/Skidmore community
Tickets are available here

The evening’s program will feature Petronio's Untitled Touchan exploration of how we make contact and connections—to one another and to our surrounding space and environment.  Merce Cunningham’s RainForest is a spare and bracing foray into animal abstract motion and sound, set loose amidst a world of floating silver pillows. RainForest features an electronic score composed by David Tudor and performed live by John Driscoll and Phil Edelstein, with visual design by Andy Warhol. RainForest is part of Stephen Petronio Company’s third season of its Bloodlines project, a project to honor and curate a lineage of American postmodern dance masters.
