Levi G-68

Levi Gonzalez is a dance artist and advocate who was based in New York City for the last 20 years, during which time his work was presented locally as well as internationally. Through his work, he has consistently participated in research and activities that question artistic process and the value of artistic engagement, seek dialogue around cultural exchange (both locally and internationally), and explore the role of embodiment and sensory experience in contemporary culture. He collaborates regularly with luciana achugar, and has performed extensively with Donna Uchizono Company, John Jasperse Company, Juliette Mapp, ChameckiLerner, Daria Faïn, and Michael Laub's Remote Control Productions in Europe, among others. He was a founding editor of Critical Correspondence, an online publication of Movement Research, from 2006 to 2009. He served as Artistic Advisor for New York Live Art’s Fresh Tracks Residency Program from 2006 to 2014, a position he helped institute and develop alongside the evolution of the residency program. From 2012 to 2016 he served as Director of Artist Programs for Movement Research, through which he oversaw and developed such programs as the Artist-in-Residency program, Studies Project series, Spring Festival, MRX (Movement Research Exchange), and Sunday Process Lab series to name a few. He was a 2003-2004 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence, received a NYFA Choreography Fellowship in 2006, and was a 2012-2014 Brooklyn Arts Exchange Artist-in-Residence. Since 2003, he has taught regularly at Movement Research and has also taught nationally and internationally, in various professional and academic contexts. He is currently an MFA candidate in Dance at UCLA’s Department of World Arts and Culture/Dance.
