GALLIM 2019 WINTER INTENSIVE
January 7th - 11th, 2019
Join Gallim this winter for a five-day Winter Intensive, January 7th - January 11th and dive into your body and artistry through Artistic Director & Choreographer Andrea Miller's visceral movement language. Gallim's Winter Intensive is anchored in Miller’s distinct artistry and pedagogy that combine a movement language of technical nuance and raw vulnerability rooted in dance, theater, and visual arts. Students are immersed in Gallim’s culture and creative practice of improvisation and repertory, and invited to unearth new depths of artistry and virtuosity through technique classes, performance studies, as well as methodologies for movement invention and composition. In addition to class work, Andrea Miller and Gallim dancers lead and support discussions about the state of the field, topics of professional development, and nurturing life as an artist. The 2019 Winter Intensive will focus on Andrea Miller's newest work, To Create a World, premiering at The Joyce Theater in February 2019.

WINTER INTENSIVE CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
GALLIM COMPANY CLASS is inspired by the company’s collective discoveries in traditional movement techniques, Gaga, Gyrotonic, and Miller’s choreographic works. The class develops students technical and creative growth through a sensitive improvisational conversation between the body's network of systems and the imagination.
MOVEMENT INVENTION LAB is a method of physical and creative exploration for the purpose of finding new access to the body, movement and composition. The class is anchored in Miller's unique method of research which ultimately is built to support the development of the student's individual creative voice and access to creativity. Improvisational games and compositional tools are often derived directly from Gallim’s creative process. Miller will be workshopping material from Gallim's 2019 Joyce premiere.
REPERTORY offers students the opportunity to sink their teeth into some of Gallim’s challenging choreography. Students gain insight to the artistic evolution involved in the rehearsal process and participate in the compositional methods that Miller uses to build new material.
"Discussion of Dance and Performance" Lunch Discussions are an opportunity for students to take part in important conversations surrounding issues about the current landscape in the industry in a welcoming and nurturing space. Discussions revolve around social, political, and artistic current events, challenges, and progress. In these forums, the emerging artist is encouraged to bring forth their thoughts and ideas as they pertain specifically to artistic expression in our current socio-political climate.
