Stephen Petronio Company


Another one­choreographer troupe joins a trend: Stephen Petronio incorporates Merce Cunningham’s Warhol­designed RainForest into his 30th­anniversary season, alongside his own new Locomotor/Non Locomotor. Both feature Petronio’s virtuosic seven­member troupe and guest dancer Melissa Toogood, formerly of Cunningham’s ensemble. Rainforest, with its iconic floating silver pillows, has a score by David Tudor, played live; the Petronio premiere boasts music by Clams Casino and includes the Young People’s Chorus of New York.

Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: April 7. Continues through April 12, 2015
