And lose the name of action is a new performance in development by Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People, featuring Gutierrez and a star studded cast: Michelle Boulé, Hilary Clark, Luke George, K.J. Holmes and Ishmael Houston-Jones. Inspired by discoveries in neuroscience and paranormal phenomena, and drawing on the mysterious logic of improvisation, this new piece pushes Gutierrez’s persistent questions about the wonder of living with an ephemeral body into the beyond. Wry and perplexing, And lose the name of action treats the inscrutability of dance as its inherent power and savors its unique ability to be something that doesn’t make sense. The piece includes sound design by Neal Medlyn, lighting by Lenore Doxsee and visuals and writing by Boru O’Brien O’Connell.
The work in process showing will be followed by a moderated conversation with writer Jenn Joy.
