GALLIM returns to The Joyce with a dynamic bill celebrating a 15-year prolific period of Artistic Director and Founder, Andrea Miller’s, expansive, boundary-blurring, interdisciplinary work. Music pulsates throughout the program with the intoxicating tracks of Nicholas Jaar in FROM and SAMA, and the hallowed sounds by music legend Sade in No Ordinary Love, performed by special guests Chalvar Monteiro and Issa Perez. Also on the program is a reimagining of Miller's 2013 full evening work, FOLD HERE, created during Miller's first pregnancy and originally inspired by the short story Cathedrals by Raymon Carver. The reimagined work, now titled Castles, allows a new group of GALLIM artists to explore various degrees of the unknown through movement crafted from the raw energy of human emotion, generosity, and compassion. Returning to the Joyce stage is state, a trio capturing the deep connections women build to hold each other up and the urgency and beauty of individual expression. The GALLIM of 2023 is a company of dancers and collaborators who are highly physical and delicately nuanced in their expressive virtuosity.
Bodies of Matter is the history and future of the humanity, bodies, and ideas that have come to represent GALLIM. New works and long time favorites all share Miller and GALLIM’s embodiment of the elemental and sensual, appearing in the glow and shadows of live performance and its alchemy.
