“Both stirring and chilling.”—New York Times
Founded in 2006 by choreographer Andrea Miller, a former Batsheva Ensemble dancer, Gallim Dance is a New York City-based company that has been called “gloriously quirky” by Dance Magazine and “Excellent . . . inventive . . . impressive” by the New York Times. The young company will perform Blush, an invigorating work dense with emotion and physical exertion. In this piece set to a collage of music ranging from Chopin to electro punk, Miller's visceral choreography investigates themes of intimacy, instability and the desire of the heart and body to feel strongly.
