Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People

“Improvisation makes you realize how important, scary, and potentially wonderful every single second of your life can be.”
—Miguel Gutierrez

My Show:
A work for dancers, aged 33 to 62, exploring the crisscrossing pathways of the brain and the elusive logic of improvisation, welcoming mixed messages while accessing an eerie, otherworldly state of hope and vitality.

Sights and Sounds:
Six fierce performers, the inventive glow of light concocted by Lenore Doxsee, the hallucinatory sound stylings of Neal Medlyn, and the cool, dislocating film and words of Boru O'Brien O'Connell.

My art is most inspired by:
Most recently, ghosts, varying definitions of consciousness, somatics, California sunlight and highways, and trippy, melodious electroacoustic music.

Being a ghost would be:
Fun in a men's water polo locker room.
