Stephen Petronio Intensive at Gibney
May 7 - May 11$200
Focused on a rigorous and intelligent movement practice, the intensive features technique, engagement with Petronio’s creative process, and immersion in repertory. The warm-up guides participants to make muscular and skeletal connections to their unique physicality, articulate the spine, open the joints, and direct energy throughout the body and space. Students then build movement by investigating multiple states of consciousness in the body and using physical play for accidental discovery in defiance of logic. Students learn a longer, cumulative section from Petronio repertory, addressing its unique focus on dynamic sequencing, poly-rhythmic initiations, and fearlessness within a complex architectural form.
