"How does the presence of an audience create a space of attention and extraordinary perception?
Brooklyn-based dance & music artist, Miguel Gutierrez, tangles with the poetics of performance in this weekend immersion. Moving between states of extreme expression - transcendent to mundane, heroic to abject, exhibitionist to introspective - Miguel opens Pandora's box for dancers to approach performance with ferocious commitment. Over the course of the weekend, dancers dig into real and 'invented' sensation and hammer away at their restrictive patterns to find new expressive possibilities. Engaging with the unanswerable questions of "Who are we?" and "Why are we here?" dancers acknowledge the richness and turbulence of their interior lives. Join Miguel in irreverently (Life is NOT a Bitch) vitalizing the body for the emotional, sensorial, and visceral excursion of performance.
