Sundays on Broadway co-curators Owen Prum and Weis present an evening of performances by Stephen Petronio, Mina Nishimura, Nami Yamamoto, and Cayleen Del Rosario.

The 10th Anniversary Partee has been rescheduled for the end of the Fall 2024 Season. Just didn't seem right not to celebrate the whole year. The DJ is still booked so keep your eye out for details in the fall.

In Stephen Petronio’s solo improvisation This Is Me In The Room, he will be talking and dancing—discussing what’s currently on his mind, generating movement connecting him to the architecture in the room and eyes watching him.

Mina Nishimura has described her Impulsive Score! Erased Score! Time Machine Score!, as an act of building a time machine that only travels forward at a rate of one second per second.

Nami Yamamoto will present an excerpt of a new work about passing knowledge through generations. For this project, she is researching what her mother and her mother’s generation experienced during World War II. She is gathering historical information and personal stories, especially about the Japanese occupation of Manchuria between 1931 and 1945 all while practicing, improvising, and exploring movement in the studio.

Cayleen Del Rosario’s site-specific performance work was made for a floor at the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies, and now, for anywhere else. There is a ghost, a speaker, a double, and a trio. Movement and words are exact and passing. Doors open and close, blood stains white. It is a psychoanalytic performance exploration on emergence, afterwardness, and the timelessness of the unconscious. The is-ness of the situation unfolds with a feeling opposite of dread.

Artists' Bios:

Cayleen Del Rosario is a dancer and choreographer based in NYC. She received her BFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, and is currently a master’s candidate at the New York Graduate School for Psychoanalysis. Her work has been presented at Triskelion Arts, Provincetown Dance Festival, Center for Performance Research, Truro Center for the Arts, PAGEANT, and Movement Research at Judson Church. As part of her ongoing performance research, she has worked with artists Sharleen Chidiac, Andrea Geyer, Neil Greenberg, Maya Lee-Parritz, I-Ling Liu, Kyle Marshall, and Jeremy Nelson, among others.

Mina Nishimura, from Tokyo, was introduced to butoh and improvisational dance through Kota Yamazaki. Buddhism-influenced philosophical concepts are reflected across her somatic, performance and choreographic practice. She is a recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists Award (2019), and was Danspace’s Renewal Residency Artist in 2022-2023, working on her new project, Mapping a Forest while Searching for an Opposite Term of Excorcist, which was premiered at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and Danspace Project in 2023. She currently teaches at Bennington College where she completed her MFA fellowship in 2021.

Stephen Petronio is an acclaimed American choreographer, dancer, and artistic director known for his innovative and boundary-pushing work in contemporary dance. A graduate of Hampshire College, early student of Steve Paxton, and the first male dancer in the Trisha Brown Dance Company, Petronio has made a significant impact on the dance world through his unique artistic vision and his commitment to pushing the limits of movement and expression. In 1984, Petronio founded the Stephen Petronio Company, touring and performing throughout the world. Over the years, he has collaborated with numerous artists, including Cindy Sherman, Anish Kapoor, Robert Longo, Janine Antoni, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Rufus Wainwright, Monstah Black, Tara Subkoff, and Leigh Bowery, among others. In 2014 he conceived an ongoing signature initiative, Bloodlines, to honor the experimental Judson pioneers who have inspired him, and Bloodlines(future), to more equitably support the next generation of dancers and choreographers in this artistic lineage. He founded the Stephen Petronio Residency Center (2017-2023), a research and development facility immersed in the Catskills forest of upstate New York that provided rare support for artists and their personal creative growth in nature and without restriction.

Nami Yamamoto, from Matsuyama, Japan, holds an MA in dance education from New York University and a BA in physical education from Ehime University. Yamamoto is a Bessie awardee (the New York Dance and Performance Awards) for the outstanding production of Headless Wolf that was presented at Roulette in 2017. She enjoys teaching dance at NYC public schools through Together in Dance and currently teaches at Lehman College. She is honored to be a Hodder Fellow at Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University in 2024-2025.
