Stephen Petronio Company is proud to announce the Virtual Bloodlines Festival, a three week long, donation based, digital happening showcasing the work of postmodern dance masters Trisha Brown, Merce Cunningham, Anna Halprin, Steve Paxton, Rudy Perez, and Yvonne Rainer. Running October 23 –November 14, 2020, the online festival will feature screenings of work from Stephen Petronio Company’s Bloodlines, which began in 2015 and has since restaged 11 iconic dances. These masterpieces have irrevocably marked the American postmodern dance landscape and have had a particular impact on Petronio’s own thinking. The screenings will be coupled with interviews and insightful dialogues with guest hosts Deborah Jowitt, Wendy Perron, Yvonne Rainer, and dancers that have embodied these restagings.
