Levi Gonzalez

Levi Gonzalez is a dance artist from Los Angeles who was based in New York City from 1998-2016, and is currently Dance Faculty at Bennington College. He collaborates regularly with luciana achugar, and has performed 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, where he served as Director of Artist Programs from 2012-2016. He was also the founding Artistic Advisor of New York Live Art’s Fresh Tracks Residency. His work has been supported by the Jerome Foundation, Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, Brookyn Arts Exchange, NYFA and Movement Research, among others. He has participated in multiple artistic exchange projects in Eastern Europe, engaging with artists, writers and arts advocates throughout the region. He recently received his MFA in Dance at UCLA’s Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance in June of 2019.

Gonzalez's current work involves subtly subverting the constructs of performance by highlighting the porous boundaries between audience and performer, challenging the traditional architecture of the theater, and exploring a queer corporeal logic of bodies as a means of organizing information and experience.
