Bodies of Work
"Difficult bodies" don't make it in the dance world -- right? In the "diptych" performance of Retrospective Exhibitionist and Difficult Bodies, Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People confront this harsh dance-world mantra. The colorful Brooklyn-based crew uses its in-your-face, goofy brand of modern movement to explore the effects -- good and bad -- that dance and performance have on the body and mind. Gutierrez performs solo in Retrospective Exhibitionist and joins three female dancers for Difficult Bodies, moving throughout to live and recorded video and sound, including the music of U2, Interpol and Destiny's Child.
March 3-4, 8 p.m.
