Gallim

Andrea Miller, Artistic Director of Gallim, returns to The Joyce Theater after a year as the choreographer-in-residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Building on her discoveries there, Miller’s new work, To Create a World, harnesses the uncompromising virtuosity and raw vulnerability of the Gallim dancers in a provocative study of the human body and its instinct to survive. 

At once textural and psychological, Miller’s To Create a World is a multilayered exploration of the body’s instinct to survive and the human urge to reinterpret and rationalize this instinct. With the body as the central force—both mover and moved—the evening-length work traces inner currents of pleasure and pain, regret and love, control and abandon, in a series of continually shifting sculptural portraits. To Create a World features an original score by composer/multi-instrumentalist Will Epstein, who collaborated with the company at The Met Breuer in spring 2018. Lighting design is by Burke Brown. Costumes are by Jose Solis. The work will be performed by Gallim dancers Ashley Hill, Allysen Hooks, David Maurice, Gary Reagan, Haley Sung, and Dan Walczak. 

Performances are February 12–17, 2019 (Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm, Thursday–Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday at 2pm). The Joyce Theater is located at 175 Eighth Avenue (at 19th Street), in Manhattan.
