Stephen Petronio Company

Experimental, Modern

Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, Stephen Petronio is widely regarded as one of the leading dance-makers of his generation. New music, visual art, and fashion collide in his dances, producing powerfully modern landscapes for the senses. For 33 years, Petronio has built a body of work with some of the most talented and provocative artists in the world. For Stephen Petronio Companyís Washington Center debut, the program will feature a dynamic excerpt from Steve Paxtonís Goldberg Variations (1986), along with Petronioís Untitled Touch (2017), a work driven by the immediacy of physical contact and the emotional repercussions of skin-to-skin communication with an original score by Son Lux, and the west coast premiere of a new Petronio work, Hardness 10.
