I as another is a new duet created by Miguel Gutierrez. Performed with Laila Franklin, the work takes place in a future/present dystopia and explores the virtual architecture of memory, what it means to be alongside one another, and how existential despair has come into public view. Drawing inspiration from Martinican philosopher Édouard Glissant and his conceptions of Relation and Opacity, I as another examines what it means for differences to come into contact and how unknowable we can be.

Miguel Gutierrez is a choreographer, music artist, writer, visual artist, educator, podcaster, and Feldenkrais Method practitioner based in Lenapehoking/Brooklyn, NY and Tovaangar/Los Angeles. His work creates empathetic and irreverent spaces outside of traditional discourse.

I as another is supported by a Caroline A. Hearst commission from Princeton University and contributions from individual donors. It has been developed through a Resident Artist Residency at Movement Research in New York and a residency at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
