In addition to providing the infrastructure for the creation, presentation, and preservation of Stephen Petronio dance works, the Company is in the third year of Bloodlines—a project to bring masterworks by pioneering American post-modern choreographers, such as Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown, and Yvonne Rainer, into the Company’s repertory. In a natural extension of this impulse, Stephen Petronio Company has this year launched a campaign to establish a choreographic residency program in the Hudson Valley, New York. The residency program will focus on research and the creative process, providing dedicated rehearsal space and resources to choreographers and their collaborators to explore ideas and develop new work away from the daily pressures of urban life.
