Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People And lose the name of action

January 31, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 12:00 am

$10 - $28

Miguel Gutierrez, the Brooklyn-based dance artist, makes his Chicago debut with a new work inspired by the elusive logic of dance improvisation, studies of human consciousness, and the 19th century spiritualist movement. He is joined onstage by an all-star cast of six distinctive artists who have been brought together by Gutierrez to form an artistically and physically diverse ensemble: Michelle Boulé, Hilary Clark, Luke George, Miguel Gutierrez, K.J. Holmes, and Ishmael Houston-Jones.

The performers use dance, dialogue, music, improvisation, and recorded sounds to draw connections between the analytical and the unexplainable, grappling with the limits of language and the ever present specter of death. Probing complex theoretical issues, taking on relationships between perception and reality, mind and body, Gutierrez spares nothing in this dazzling work that crackles with wit and immediacy.
