Miguel Gutierrez, a dance and music artist based in New York, has been called “one of our most provocative and necessary artistic voices” by Eva Yaa Asantewaa of Dance Magazine. He makes solo and group pieces with a variety of artists under the moniker Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People. His work has toured internationally at several festivals and venues and has received support from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Foundation for Contemporary Art, United States Artists, Creative Capital, Jerome Foundation, Rockefeller MAP Fund, NYFA, NEA and NPN. He is the winner of three New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” awards.  WHEN YOU RISE UP, a book of his performance texts, is available from 53rd State Press. He also invented DEEP AEROBICS, an absurdist workout for the radical in all of us.
