Narciso Rodriguez designs costumes for Stephen Petronio’s “Locomotor/Non Locomotor”

Fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez recently collaborated with famous choreographer and dancer Stephen Petronio, creating the costumes of his latest production, titled “Locomotor/Non Locomotor”. The costumes will be presented in public during Stephen Petronio Company’s benefit gala that will be held on April 8 at The Joyce Theater, New York. “Locomotor/Non Locomotor” is the follow up of last year’s “Locomotor”, featuring an original score by experimental composer Michael Volpe, widely known under the name “Clams Casino”, which incorporates vocal elements by the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. According to Petronio, “Locomotor/Non Locomotor” explores movement deep within a torqueing center, sending surges of action throughout the body while stationary in space.

The benefit gala, whose honorary chair is artist Cindy Sherman, will also pay homage to the work of famed dance historian and critic David Vaughan, longtime archivist of the legendary Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Apart from the world-premier of “Locomotor/Non Locomotor”, the gala will include Merce Cunningham’sRainForest” (1968), with original music by David Tudor and visual design by Andy Warhol. Both pieces form part of “Bloodlines”, Petronio’s five-year project that reinterprets works by American postmodern dance trailblazers, and coincide with the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the Stephen Petronio Company, founded back in 1984. Performances run from April 7-12 at The Joyce Theater, 175 8th Ave, New York.
