A new site-specific work by contemporary Houston and New York-based choreographer Laura Gutierrez, Center Aisle Blues stems from childhood memories of Fiesta Mart to more recent political realizations. Gutierrez choreographs movement inspired by the aisles and atmosphere of a local Fiesta, playing on the aesthetics of the supermarket, the ritualistic experience of grocery shopping, and the convergence of diverse communities in the aisles. Responding directly to the people and objects around her, Gutierrez crafts a traveling performance to challenge concepts of performance and place. More info…
