Thumbnail for - Stephen Petronio Company: Like Lazarus Did

Limbs spin like swords on a roulette wheel in the dark, sexy, and beautiful Like Lazarus Did, the latest work by veteran dance maker Stephen Petronio (this is his sixth White Bird performance). The original score by NPR-darling Son Lux alternates between electronic interpretations of lost slave songs, given soaring life by the Pacific Youth Choir, to trance-inducing, pulsing rhythms that left the audience as breathless as the dancers (one particularly gripping segment, literally, involved three male dancers hoisting and tossing one of the women through the air to a score with clanging pipes). Meanwhile, Petronio himself lays corpse-like on stage, a static compliment to the themes of mourning and loss in the music.
