Randjelović / Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist
The Randjelović/Stryker Resident Commissioned Artist program was created in 2011 by New York Live Arts to address what we perceive to be an overall lack of support for mid-career artists. The program is by-invitation only and offers a salary, health benefits, two years of residency time and a commission of a new work to premiere at New York Live Arts. Select works will then be chosen for a fully produced national and/or international tour managed by New York Live Arts.
2023-23 Miguel Gutierrez
Miguel Gutierrez is a choreographer, composer, performer, singer, writer, educator, podcaster, visual artist, and arts advocate who has been based in Lenapehoking/Brooklyn for twenty five years. His work creates empathetic and irreverent spaces outside of traditional discourse – he believes in an approach to art making that is fierce, fragile, empathetic, political, and poetic.
As the seventh RCA, Gutierrez begins his residency after premiering the new duet I as another at Bates Dance Festival in 2022, which was commissioned by Princeton University. His work has been presented in more than 60 cities around the world, in venues and festivals such as Festival d’Automne, Centre National de Danse, Centre Pompidou, Montpellier Danse, Festival Universitario/Colombia, Bipod Festival/Beirut, ImPulsTanz, Fringe Arts, Walker Art Center, Wexner Center for the Arts, TBA/PICA, MCA Chicago, Live Arts Bard, and the Kathleen Hermesdorf Fresh Fest. New York at The Kitchen, New York Live Arts, BAM, Danspace Project, Abrons Art Center, the Chocolate Factory, American Realness Festival, and the 2014 Whitney Biennial. In 2017 he created a commissioned work for Ballet de Lorraine.
