The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosted Miguel Gutierrez for a special one-night-only performance on July 17. This performance included a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

A living legend of contemporary dance-making in the downtown New York scene, Miguel Gutierrez is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Lenapehoking/Brooklyn, NY and Tovaangar/Los Angeles, CA. He creates empathetic and irreverent spaces for queer and trans people of color to dream. While at the Pillow, Gutierrez will perform sueño, a new music project that “incorporates dancers and live musicians, offering the audience a heightened world of fantastical drama” (The Highline).

His work has been presented internationally in venues such as Festival d’Automne/Paris, the Walker Art Center, and in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. He is a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Award, four NY Dance and Performance Bessie Awards, and a 2016 Doris Duke Artist Award. He is an Associate Professor of Choreography at UCLA in the department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance.

ASL interpretation will be available for this performance.
