Miguel Gutierrez (NY) Returning Choreographic Fellow

Miguel Gutierrez returns to MANCC to develop the first part of a new suite of queer pieces he will be working on over the next two years titled Age & Beauty. The project deals with the challenge of being a mid-career artist and the attendant questions of longevity, sustainability, aesthetic signature and burnout.  While at MANCC, Guiterrez will work on Part 1 in the series, which is a duet with Mickey Mahar.

Age & Beauty will premiere during the Whitney 2014 Biennial.

This residency is made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. 

Miguel Gutierrez’s Biography

Miguel Gutierrez is a New York based dance and music artist who has been called “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” by Eva Yaa Asantewaa of Dance Magazine. He makes solo and group pieces with a variety of artists under the moniker Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People. Interested in enduring philosophical questions about desire, longing, and the search for meaning, Gutierrez’s work sits inside a legacy of process-focused experimental dance while drawing on far-reaching influences such as endurance based performance art, noise music, ecstatic experience in social and religious rituals, the study of mind/body somatic systems, and various histories of spectacle including Broadway, Vegas, and queer performance in alternative clubs from the 80’s until now.
