>>> we regret that the GUTIERREZ workshop is SOLD OUT. thank you all for your interest and support. 

the irreverent performance maker/writer engages participants of all levels in his improvisation and performance practice, which centers on the senses – the primary, movement, energetic and creative senses – to invert the conventional proposition that thought comes before action. this workshop induces people to use their full range of emotional and expressive possibilities to answer the questions “what constitutes communication, good improvisation, listening and development?

MIGUEL GUTIERREZ, a dance and music artist based in NEW YORK, 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. his work has toured internationally at several festivals and venues and has received support from the GUGGENHEIM FOUNDATION, the FOUNDATION for CONTEMPORARY ART, UNITED STATES ARTISTS, CREATIVE CAPITAL, JEROME FOUNDATION, ROCKEFELLER MAP FUND, NYFA, NEA and NPN. he is the winner of three NEW YORK DANCE and PERFORMANCE “BESSIE” AWARDS.
