Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People
And lose the name of action
Walker Commission/World Premiere
“His political and creative restlessness—his refusal to settle and to settle down—makes him one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices.” —Dance Magazine
A provocateur known for performances “that are things themselves,” Miguel Gutierrez premieres a major work to open the Walker’s new season. Inspired by discoveries in neuroscience and paranormal phenomena, Gutierrez delves into the wonder of living with an ephemeral body in the here and now, and into the beyond. This wry, playfully perplexing piece draws on the mysterious logic of improvisation among a star-studded cast that includes Gutierrez, Michelle Boulé, Hilary Clark, Luke George, K. J. Holmes, and Ishmael Houston-Jones, and features sound design by Neal Medlyn, lighting by Lenore Doxsee, and visuals and writing by Boru O’Brien O’Connell.
Commissioned by the Walker Art Center with support provided by the William and Nadine McGuire Commissioning Fund, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts.
