Dance program is thrilled to have Miguel Gutierrez as a guest artist in residence

Miguel Gutierrez is a choreographer, composer, performer, singer, writer, educator and advocate who has lived in New York for over twenty years.

Miguel Gutierrez / artist-in-residence @ the UNM Dance Program / October 28 – November 9
Artist Talk on Friday, November 1, 1:00-2:20pm / UNM Art Museum Upper Gallery

Miguel Gutierrez is fascinated by the time-based nature of performance and how it creates an ideal frame for phenomenological questions around presence and meaning-making. His work proposes an immersive state, for performer and audience alike, where attention itself becomes an elastic material. He believes in an approach to art making that is fierce, fragile, empathetic, political, and irreverent. Gutierrez will teach classes, make new work, and hold an artist talk that is open to the public.
