YPC with the Stephen Petronio Dance Company

MAY 17TH – MAY 22ND, 2022

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City is thrilled to join the Stephen Petronio Dance Company on stage for their 2022 season at the Joyce Theater. YPC will perform “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Balm in Gilead” in collaboration with Brooklyn-based performance artist and composer Monstah Black for the world premiere of New New Prayer For Now. Initially conceived as a moving meditation during the Covid-19 lockdown, this bold and visceral dialogue between bodies, space and the viewer’s eye is a call for connection and hope.

YPC will also perform compositions based on the poetry of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson for a re-staging of Petronio’s Bloom (2006), the joyful and iconic collaboration with Rufus Wainwright.

Tickets start at $10. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit The Joyce Theater’s website.
