Regarded by critics as one of the leading dance-makers of his generation, Stephen Petronio often creates works that stage a collision of new music, visual art and fashion, frequently creating an entirely fresh background, or even a playground, for the senses. Audiences are left breathless. For the Company’s Houston debut, we’ll enjoy his extraordinary evening-length work, Underland, which presents a dark and brooding world inspired by the bittersweet songs of pop balladeer Nick Cave. Projected imagery and video form a backdrop to Petronio’s signature style of fast, daring movement performed with razor sharp precision, creating the powerful outlaw world that is Underland.
