Virtual Studio Tour: Jesús Muñoz

Thursday December 15, 2022 – noon-noon


Jesús Muñoz (he) is a dancer, choreographer, educator, percussionist, and MFA candidate at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Born in Mexico, Muñoz functions within the contexts of Mexican Folkloric, Afro-Cuban, Cuban Folkloric, Cuban Popular, Cuban Contemporary, Ballet, Modern, and Jazz Dance and Latin Percussion. Through movement and experimental musical making, his research proposes a reclaiming of non-dominant aesthetics of native and vernacular cultures to integrate, alienate, and harness new ways of performativity: “I create music, I write and recite poetry, I sense my body, I question the foreign sense of human flesh, and augment my capacity to transcend on stage.”

Jesús Muñoz (èl) es un bailarín, coreógrafo, educador, percusionista, y candidato a una maestría en el departamento de baile de la Universidad de Colorado, Boulder. Nacido en México, Muñoz trabaja dentro del contexto de la danza folklórica de México, danza Afro-Cubana, danza folclórica de Cuba, danza popular de Cuba, danza contemporánea de Cuba, Ballet, danza Moderna, Jazz y percusión Latina. A través del baile y composición musical experimental, su enfoque se basa en la reclamación de estéticas vernáculas y nativas no dominantes para integrar, enajenar, y utilizar nuevas maneras de performatividad: “Creo música, escribo y recito poesía, siento mi cuerpo, cuestiono el sentido de la carne humana extranjera, y aumento mi capacidad de trascender en el escenario.”
