Miguel Gutierrez at DOCH OPEN LECTURES

Queer Choreographies - whatever the fuck that means

In this artist talk I will discuss the context for the development of my work and show excerpts from my recent trilogy Age & Beauty, which places a queer lens on mortality, the representation of the dancer, the intersection of administration with art-making, and futurity.
