A bold and visceral dialogue between bodies, space and the viewer’s eye, New New Prayer For Now will premiere at The Joyce Theater May 17-22. This work is a continuation of a period of moving meditations on connected-ness and is a collaboration with composer/performance artist Monstah Black, creating music based on the treasured songs ‘Balm in Gilead’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ performed live by The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC), under the direction of Francisco Nuñez. This is a reach for healing through embodiment and connection.

The mission of Stephen Petronio Company (SPC) is to support the vision of choreographer Stephen Petronio, which includes the creation and presentation of his existing and new works, alongside legacy initiatives meant to preserve the history of postmodern dance lineage, while also advancing its future through new works that honor and extend the history and offer a platform for a greater inclusivity of artistic voices.
