Stephen Petronio Company presents _AShadowPrince, the first commissioned work as part of the new Bloodlines(future) program. This solo on video by emerging choreographer and performer Johnnie Cruise Mercer was commissioned as a personalized self-portrait, a memoir tracking through his personal past yet treading toward an inherited epic future. The new work takes form within a multi-layered facilitated process, a scattered series of ritualistic happenings inspired by rebellion, rooted in the radical, and called upon by courage.
