Gabriel Mata M.F.A

(pronounced: gah-bryehl mah-tah) is a

Mexican American movement artist, choreographer, and educator based in Washington DC. He navigates the world as queer, Latinx, immigrant, and as of recently a permanent resident to the United States.


Through Mata’s seven-year research of cultivating "motion memoirs" he accesses histories of the moving body living in colored skin, queerness, and intersectionality. He taps into distant memory and uses voice to work create performances and conversation while also removing hierarchical concert dance standards and expectations. Motion memoirs are humanistic, are guided by an egalitarian approach, and are a resourceful blueprint for artists.
