Culture Connect Featured Event
"Sexy, reckless and edgy as hell, this performance [is as] exciting as high art can get." —Nashville Scene
Andrea Miller, Artistic Director of Gallim Dance, took the Center for the Arts by storm when her company performed at DanceMasters Weekend in 2011. Hailed for their quick wit, technical virtuosity, and visceral movement style, Ms. Miller's works embody fearless physicality. At the same time, her choreography is grounded by deep humanity, and is expressed through the madness and joy of the imagination. At Wesleyan, Gallim Dance will perform the New England premiere of “Mama Call” (2011), a contemporary tale of border-crossing, and “Pupil Suite” (2010), set to the contagious music of Israeli band Balkan Beat Box. Ms. Miller was the 2011 recipient of Wesleyan's Mariam McGlone Emerging Choreographer Award. A Breaking Ground Dance Series event presented by the Dance Department and the Center for the Arts. Made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and co-sponsored by the Jewish and Israel Studies Program and the Rosenberg Family Fund for Jewish Student Life.
There will be a pre-performance talk with dance scholar Debra Cash on Friday, February 8 at 7:30pm in CFA Hall, 287 Washington Terrace, Middletown, CT.
Shows begin at 8pm.
