Following Stephen Petronio's performance of The Courtesan and the Crone, a screening of Kevin Hayden’s short film Between Stephen and Yvonne, 2017 (10 minutes), presents Petronio in conversation with fellow postmodern dancer Yvonne Rainer. Rainer was a student of Halprin’s in the 1960s, and this film helps chart the interconnecting histories of postmodern dance in the United States.
Following this screening, Petronio continued this process of conversation via a roundtable discussion with dancer Nina Martin and curator Jennifer Burris Staton
