Big News! NYC workshop intensive Oct 16-21 and ATHE 2017 Career Achievement Award

Hi ALL!

Come to NYC for a week-long performance workshop I will be leading at Dixon Place Oct 16-21.

This performance workshop welcomes performers at all levels of experience, artists, activists, queer-identified and queer-allied folks to come together to create an original performance that maps the charged border between our bodies and society…our personal narratives and our politics…our private selves and public view. Over the course of one week, we will shape our discoveries into a public performance at Dixon Place Oct 21. More info below and at Dixon Place's website.

I was super honored to be given the Association for Theatre in Higher Education Ellen Stewart Award for Career Achievement in Professional Theatre. What a joy to have the award ceremony for this be witnessed at the ATHE conference in Las Vegas by so many beloved friends, colleagues, scholars, artists, and activists. What a privilege it is to get to work in the juicy conversation between theatres, arts centers, colleges, and universities as we encourage new and diverse voices and witness for this mad time we occupy. Thanks so much ATHE, Sonja Kuftinec for nominating me, and for all the people who wrote in support. And now, back to work! I hit the road for the 2017-18 tour and I am excited for the coming season with my new show ROOTED in NYC at Dixon Place Oct 14 and 21. Shows in Boston and LA, and residencies & performances at USC, SMU, Northeastern University, Hamilton College, Syracuse University, Butler Univ, Kennesaw State University, UNC School of the Arts, and more!

BODY MAPS, PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP INTENSIVE
October 16-21 Dixon Place, NYC

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR PEOPLE TO GATHER TOGETHER AND EXPLORE CREATING ORIGINAL PERFORMANCES

My goal is to share a variety of strategies to create original performances from the tremendous energies and stories that are present in our lives. Using our own memories and myths as a jumping off point, we will see where a deep sense of personal history creates performance that jumps out from our bodies onto the stage or the page.

This performance workshop welcomes performers at all levels of experience, artists, activists, queer-identified and queer-allied folks to come together to create an original performance that maps the charged border between our bodies and society…our personal narratives and our politics…our private selves and public view. Over the course of one week, we will shape our discoveries into a public performance. Our work will be a fun and charged exploration into creating original performance work from our personal lives: from our dreams, obsessions, peeves, memories and desires. Telling our own story doesn't separate us from other people, it connects us.

We will work intensively for a week and the workshop will culminate in an ensemble-generated public performance from your fierce creativity! Please bring your hearts and brains, hopes and fears.

If you have any questions, please contact Tim Miller at millertale@gmail.com
