Miguel Gutierrez, a dance and music artist based in New York, USA, has been called “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” by Dance Magazine. His work has toured internationally at several festivals and venues with his works and has received support from numerous renowned foundations. He is the winner of three New York Dance and Performance Bessie awards (2002, 2006 and 2010) and a Guggenheim Fellowship in choreography (2010). In his work he weaves together movement, song, and spoken word to create process-focused experimental dance performances where emotional affect is at the conceptual and choreographic core. Gutierrez says that his work is “philosophical inquiry disguised as performance.” He often deals with themes like desire, longing and searching for meaning.
