In this five-day workshop, Miguel Gutierrez focuses on the creative process in making body/movement-based performance/dance. A variety of approaches to creating — intuitive, improvisational, analytical — are exploited to uncover your individual interests, your process and your work. The workshop consists of unequal parts making, discussing, improvising, and watching the work of other workshop participants. Miguel’s interest is in creating a space in which traditional notions of dance are critiqued, absorbed, or discarded in the service of creating performance that comes from a vital place. An ongoing question throughout the workshop is how to make work that is located in a contemporary context.
