Stephen Petronio Company’s New Prayer For Now (Part 1)

May 13 – 26, 2021

Through five dance works newly created or reimagined, Stephen Petronio Company presents a digital program expressing our collective longing for human connection and the unique ways a body in motion can transcend our current moment. All works were filmed on site at the Petronio Residency Center and Hudson Hall in upstate New York during a series of ‘bubble residencies.”

A debut, New Prayer For Now (Part 1), features music by Monstah Black and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, inspired by “Balm in Gilead” by Harry Thacker Burleigh and “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Paul Simon. This in-the-round work, adapted for both virtual and live performance, will eventually allow for virtual participation of dancers from multiple locations.
