The Petronio Residency Center is a new dance retreat in the Catskill Mountains created by choreographer and head of the Stephen Petronio Company, Stephen Petronio. It is located on a 175-acre farm in Round Top, New York. Residencies allow artists time for creation, discussion, and critical thinking, free from the mandates and responsibilities of daily life and any specific deliverables.

Stephen Petronio Company is announcing its arrival in the Hudson Valley with a program of signature works at Hudson Hall in Hudson, New York this Friday through Sunday, July 6-8. The Company will perform three dances by Petronio, featuring the music of Nick Cave, Nico Muhly, and Rufus Wainwright, and a revival of choreographer Steve Paxton’s virtuosic Excerpt from Goldberg Variations (1986).

Her lab and art space is in the main house at Manitoga.

Tanaka was born in Osaka, Japan and graduated from Osaka University before relocating to New York. She lives and works in Beacon, NY and her art has been shown all around the world. Manitoga’s Executive Director Allison Cross and Kazumia Tanaka join us.

  Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center is the House, Studio and Woodland garden of mid-century designer Russel Wright. It is a National Historic Landmark, an Affiliate Site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a World Monuments Watch Site.

Manitoga’s Artist Residency program was initiated in 2014 to foster creative responses to Manitoga that invoke Russel Wright's legacy of creative experimentation and celebration of place.

This year’s residency artist, Peter Bynum, is known for his light-infused sculptural paintings and large-scale installations. He creates his work by pressing paint between sheets of glass - allowing it to spread, span, and split according to its own plan. He then layers these branched paintings over each other and illuminates them from behind. The effect is singular.

Bynum’s work has been exhibited all over the world. His residency exhibition, Ecstatic Light, presents a site-specific installation of several pieces in Russel Wright’s House and Studio, marking Manitoga’s first presentation of a contemporary artist within the interiors of the property.
