The work of Stephen Petronio has always spoken to my soul. For me it is the intrinsic value of his work, the ways in which he portrays the human condition. He is one of those rare artists who has the ability to combine both the cerebral and the emotional aspects giving us a glimpse into that which has made him and that which continues to inspire him.

Big Daddy (Deluxe) is the perfect example of this. Having its world premiere earlier this month at the Joyce, Mr. Petronio presented a chronicle of sorts by using the combination of text, music and movement. The work is a recollection of memories of his father, Thomas Petronio, who passed away a few years ago.
