In “Age & Beauty: Part 1 – Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/”, Miguel Gutierrez (born New York, 1971, where he lives and works) duets with the young dancer Mickey Mahar, bringing to the stage a show that is halfway between dance and cabaret, which addresses, in an ironic manner, a series of stereotypes related to beauty, physical decay and artistic career.

“Age & Beauty Part 1: Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/” is the first of a series of pieces addressing queer issues, on which Gutierrez has been working for the last three years. It looks at the representation of the dancer, the physical and emotional torment of the performance, the problems of an aging gay choreographer, the interaction between the making and the management of art, the idea of Queer time and the future and mid-life crisis in the value, sustainability and burning out of the artist. In the first part of this trilogy, the pair formed by the forty three year-old Gutierrez and the twenty three year-old performer and dancer Mickey Mahar, pass from a precise sequence of movements in unison, to an irreverent and celebratory alteration of that order, suggesting ways of communication and relations in which the emotional feelings do not simply represent the core concept and choreography of the performance, but also the only hope of being able to go forward in this fucked up world.
