Friday, January 18, 2019 | SHARE

Premieres Wednesday, January 30 at 9:30 p.m. on ALL ARTS

Synopsis:

Explore Andrea Miller’s creative process as the first choreographer to be named Artist-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Miller’s installations at the Temple of Dendur and the Met Breuer contemplate the relationship of bodies in site-specific spaces. Watch her play with interpretation in physical conversation with her dancers and see her work evolve during her yearlong residency.

About Andrea Miller:

Andrea Miller, Artistic Director and choreographer of the Brooklyn-based company, Gallim, has established herself as a perpetually groundbreaking artist who brings unbridled empathy, intimacy, and sensitivity to her work. A sought-after creator and collaborator in dance, art, film, theater, tech, and fashion, Miller was named 2017/2018 Artist in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, becoming the first choreographer to hold that distinction.

Noteworthy Facts:

  • Miller closed her residency with six days of performances of (C)arbon, an anthropological study of the body that took over the entire fifth floor of The Met Breuer.
  • Stone Skipping, performed at the Temple of Dendur, served as the opening performance of Miller’s residency. It explores the journey of the Temple from the Nile to its current home at the Met, examining what it means to travel from one’s original home.
  • Visual art so greatly informed and inspired these performance pieces that the lines between genres (dance and visual art) are impossible to untangle. It is neither just one nor the other.
