Linda Shelton, Executive Director of The Joyce Theater Foundation, announced that The Joyce has selected Stephen Petronio as its first Artist-in-Residence.

The residency is designed to allow choreographers to focus on artistic efforts and to establish a daily choreographic practice while also infusing the Joyce’s operations with their ongoing insights. The Artist-in-Residence initiative is made possible by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

“It is an honor to be The Joyce’s first Artist-in-Residence,” said Stephen Petronio. “The significant and ongoing level of support this offers is an incredible opportunity for my creative life, and I relish the possibilities of an exciting new adventure for both of our organizations.”
