Stephen Petronio Company

Irish Premiere

Bloom (Petrnio/Rufus Wainwright)

Bud Suite (Petronio/Rufus Wainwright)

The Rite Part (Petrionio/Stravinsky)

Petronio has collaborated with one of the world's leading musicians and composers Rufus Wainwright, on two major pieces to be presented at Galway Arts Festival. Waitwright's Bloom is a specially commissioned score arranged for his own multi-layered vocals and will feature a live choir while Bud Suite sees Petronio's dancers negotiating their way through amiguous, sensuous encounters to the urban love lyrics of Wainwright songs. Petronio also showcases one of his classic dances The Rite Part set to music by Igor Stravinsky.
