"I am curious to understand the capacity of the body, its anatomy, its power, and its instinct to connect with the space and events around us. In my work, I look for texture, a quality of energy or a psychological pitch that surfaces in the doing of things."
Andrea Miller, Artistic Director and choreographer of 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, and in October 2018 she was featured in Forbes as a female entrepreneur and leader in the dance world. .
Miller creates movement-based works for dance, theater, museums, gallery spaces, film, fashion, events, and brands. Her highly acclaimed works and commissions are performed by Gallim as well as other leading dance companies around the world, and have been performed worldwide including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Frieze Festival, Art Basel, Carmina Burana at Lincoln Center and The Kennedy Center, BAM Next Wave, The Joyce, Jacob's Pillow, Spoleto USA, Theatre National de Chaillot, Grec Festival de Barcelona, The Grand Theatre de la Ville de Luxembourg, Theaterhaus Stuttgart, and Canal Madrid.
