Ted Shawn Theatre
August 7-11, 2019
Featuring: World Premiere
For more than a decade, Brooklyn-based Gallim has embodied human connection through bold, raw, transformative works. A former dancer with Batsheva Dance Company and, most recently, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s first choreographic Artist-in-Residence, Artistic Director Andrea Miller has established herself as a perpetually groundbreaking artist who brings unbridled vulnerability and sensitivity to her work. New York Magazine describes, “her viscerally physical movement wrings every inch of life from her dancers—and you’ll be holding your breath, too.”
With uncompromising authenticity, Gallim makes its Ted Shawn Theatre debut with “Boat”, a work influenced by the Syrian refugee crisis and those who are pursuing their hopes for life and safety, and a Pillow co-commissioned world premiere that captures the intoxicating ecstasy of dancing.
