Some of Miguel’s Teaching Manifesto: ⠀ ⠀ "THIS IS WHY I TEACH CLASS:⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT IS A PRACTICE OF GENEROSITY⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE I LIKE TO CREATE A SPACE OF LEARNING AND CHALLENGE (CAN I SAY IT THAT WAY?)⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN TRANSFORMATION⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT IS HUMBLING⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT IS INTERESTING, NICE, RARE AND NERVE-RACKING TO BE IN A ROOM OF OTHERS PRACTICING SOMETHING TOGETHER⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT ALLOWS ME TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE AS BEAUTIFUL AND CAPABLE⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE IT STILL MAKES ME NERVOUS, WHICH MEANS I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN, WHICH MEANS I’M ALIVE⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE I AM DREAMING OF YOU NOW AS I PLAN IT, SO IT’S ALREADY BEGUN⠀ ⠀ BECAUSE AFTERWARDS I USUALLY HAVE A GOOD DAY"⠀ ——————————————————————————— ⠀ Engage in the practice of MIGUEL GUTIERREZ (NEW YORK) in our upcoming INTERRARIUM WORKSHOP. He creates dance-based performances, music and poetry that focus on desire, identity and the search for meaning. ⠀ ⠀ This workshop is a moving think tank, a 10-day workshop that explores choreography as a framework for deploying difference in a time of increasing anxiety. Open to artists of all disciplines interested in live performance.⠀ ⠀ For more info and to apply, visit the LINK IN OUR BIO! ...
