The Petronio Residency Center (PRC) addresses the shifting field of American dance by offering on-site creative residencies nestled within a 175-acre haven perched in Greene County’s Catskill Mountains. Residencies allow artists time for creation, discussion, and critical thinking, free from the mandates and responsibilities of daily life and any specific deliverables. This period of research outside of the traditional structure and timeline of art-making is crucial to developing work of surprise and depth, making PRC an important leader in a national residency network of like-minded partner programs. PRC also serves as a gathering place for the local community, affording opportunities for artists to interact with the specific place, and for the local residents to be invited in. The site of the Petronio Residency Center can provide a nurturing retreat for many–a place that provokes the creative process.
