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 lose the name of action features sound design by Neal Medlyn, lighting by Lenore Doxsee, and visuals and writing by Boru O’Brien O’Connell.
