“Tender and violent, supportive and hostile, fragile and strong, Blush is a reverent ode to the humanity that unfolds between these extremes.”
- Meghan Feeks, Dance Pulp, May 27, 2013
“On some level, Blush is unfathomable. On another it’s as dangerously, sensuously present as a touch on your own flesh.”
- Deborah Jowitt, Arts Journal, May 26, 13
“[BLUSH] is a thrilling, intense journey – one you’ll be glad you experienced.”
- Evan Namerow, Dancing Perfectly Free, May 12, 2013
Named by Dance Magazine in 2011 as a “wild child” of movement invention, Andrea Miller’s explosive works have been commissioned throughout the world. As Artistic Director and choreographer of Gallim Dance, Miller has developed an internationally acclaimed company hailed by The New York Times as “excellent [and] inventive” and by The New York Press for its “delicious strangeness, fierce aggression, and raw beauty.” Founded in 2007, the award-winning, athletic ensemble of Gallim Dance is a New York-based contemporary dance company dedicated to creating and performing original works by Andrea Miller, nurturing the careers of young artists, and stimulating the imagination of a diverse, international audience. Miller’s work embodies fearless physicality, grounded by deep humanity and expressed through the madness and joy of the imagination.
Blush takes the moment of blushing and expands it into a 60-minute journey of fiery, punctuated physicality by six dancers. The piece draws on diverse inspirations like ballet and Miller’s unique movement vocabulary to simultaneously deliver raw sensuality and power.
There will be a post-performance discussion from the stage.
