  • 3. In 2016, Gallim will focus on several large-scale multi- disciplinary works. Miller will create a new work for Gallim Dance in collaboration with The Curtis Institute of Music’s organ and vocal divisions to be performed at The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. Additionally, Miller will work with The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, D. C. to develop a new production of Carmina Burana to be performed at The Kennedy Center. “A rising–star choreographer "C r ain ’ s N e w Yo r k Gallim Dance, one of New York’s leading contemporary dance companies, creates and performs the work of Artistic Director Andrea Miller. Since 2007, Gallim has presented Miller’s artistic vision through its performances, collaborations, educational programs, and Brooklyn studio projects. With each new work, Gallim dives deeper into singular explorations of universal struggles such as love, spirituality, and the tensions between the individual and collective experience. Miller’s uncompromising creative language—which exerts every drop of sweat, every breath, and full abandonment from a virtuosic and fearless company of dancers—brings these works to life. While deeply rooted in dance expression, Gallim is a unique set of cultural ethos, drawing upon elements of theater, visual art, film, and political philosophy. Gallim performs for 20,000 audience members anually at premier venues including The Joyce Theater, Lincoln Center, BAM, the Kennedy Center, Works & Process at the Guggenheim, New York City Center, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Peak Performances at Montclair State University, Spoleto Festival, White Bird, and ODC. International venues include the Grec Festival de Barcelona (Spain), Théâtre National de Chaillot (France), Teatros del Canal (Spain), Festival Tanztage at Posthof (Austria), Teatro Nacional de Panama (Panama), the Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg, and Theaterhaus Stuttgart (Germany).

  • 5. Evening length / 8 dancers Premiere: December 2015, The Joyce Theater Andrea Miller, in her 10th work for Gallim Dance uses her radical physical language and impulsive narrative pace to juxtapose love, sex and domesticity. This piece trails the human pursuit to love and be loved, and navigates the expectations, anxiety, and forgiveness surrounding this struggle through moments of emotional vulnerability, 28 min / 8 dancers Premiere: 2013, Montclair State University Peak Performances Spill unfolds in an implausible universe where the performers explore the physical, sensorial and spiritual properties of human beings as parallel contents and containers of existence. The piece was initially inspired by Raymond Carver’s short story “Cathedral”. Evening length | 8-12 dancers Premiere: August 2010, The Joyce Theater Wonderland investigates pack mentality as an inherent and potentially dangerous element of human instinct. It was initially inspired by Chinese-born artist Cai Guo- Qiang’s installation Head On, which depicts 99 wolves charging into a glass wall. Evening length / 6 dancers Premiere: January 2009, Joyce SoHo Blush expands the sudden moment of blushing into a sixty-minute flood. Dense with emotional rawness and physical exertion, this visceral work chases one of the most elusive human expressions – the blush – through the stress and raptures as it melts to the edges of the skin. 8-25 min / 8 dancers Premiere: October 2010, New York City Center Performed to the contagious music of Israeli band Balkan Beat Box, Pupil Suite is an exuberant romp that plays with plurality, extravagance, and imagination. This work was hailed by Nancy Wozy of Arts + Culture Magazine as “lush, fierce dancing punctuated with thrilling bouts of kinetic wit.” WHALEBLUSHSPILL D E R L A N D WON S U I T E PUPIL HEREPERTORY
