About This Artist

Miguel Gutierrez is a choreographer, composer, performer, singer, writer, educator and advocate who has lived in New York for over twenty years. He is fascinated by the time-based nature of performance and how it creates an ideal frame for phenomenological questions around presence, meaning-making and the complexity of interiority. His work proposes an immersive state, where attention itself becomes a material that can be manipulated, stretched, strained, or dived into. His current work looks at how he negotiates his queer Latinx identity within the traditions of the white avant-garde. He believes in an approach to artmaking that is fierce, fragile, empathetic, political, and irreverent.

 

About This Project

Age & Beauty Part 1: Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/ is the first in a series of pieces that place a queer lens on the representation of the dancer, the physical and emotional labor of performance, and mid-life anxieties around relevance, sustainability, and artistic burnout.
