Gallim Dance, one of New York’s leading contemporary dance companies, creates and performs the work of Artistic Director Andrea Miller. Since 2007, Gallim has presented Miller’s artistic vision through its performances, collaborations, educational programs, and Brooklyn studio projects. With each new work, Gallim dives deeper into singular explorations of universal struggles such as love, spirituality, and the tensions between the individual and collective experience. Miller’s uncompromising creative language—which exerts every drop of sweat, every breath, and full abandonment from a virtuosic and fearless company of dancers—brings these works to life. The “delicious strangeness, fierce aggression, and raw beauty” (New York Press) of Gallim Dance celebrates the human spirit. While deeply rooted in dance expression, Gallim is a unique set of cultural ethos, drawing upon elements of theater, visual art, film, and political philosophy.
Gallim performs for 20,000 audience members annually at premier venues including The Joyce Theater, Lincoln Center, BAM, The Kennedy Center, Works & Process at the Guggenheim, New York City Center, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Peak Performances at Montclair State University, Spoleto Festival, White Bird, and ODC. International venues include the Grec Festival de Barcelona (Spain), Théâtre National de Chaillot (France), Teatros del Canal (Spain), Festival Tanztage at Posthof (Austria), Teatro Nacional de Panama (Panama), the Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg, and Theaterhaus Stuttgart (Germany).
Gallim has been recognized by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, The Harkness Foundation for Dance, Princess Grace Foundation-USA, The Shubert Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and New York State Council on the Arts for the strength of Miller’s artistic work and the organization. It has also received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President for its community programming.
In 2016, Gallim will focus on several large-scale multi-disciplinary works. Miller will create a new work for Gallim Dance in collaboration with The Curtis Institute of Music’s organ and vocal divisions to be performed at The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. Additionally, Miller will work with The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, D. C. to develop a new production of Carmina Burana to be performed at Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center.
First Republic Bank is Gallim’s Lead Season Sponsor in 2016.
