eight by eight is a duet set for three people performed in a loop three times in three areas of the space. With each repetition of the loop, the roles rotate and a new combination of people take on the characters of the duet, exposing the personal perspective of the performers within the narrative. eight by eight disrupts expectations of performance: beginning and end become irrelevant, any combination of performers might emerge and yet, a love story hopes to surface.



Gallim Dance presented its newest and first site-specific multidisciplinary work eight by eight at the David Rubenstein Atrium in Lincoln Center. In collaboration with cinematographer Jake Saner, composer Jordan Chiolis, and video artist Tal Rosner, Miller turned this striking public space into an intimate choreographic, visual, and sensory multimedia experience.

A resounding success for Gallim and Lincoln Center’s Atrium, both evenings audience members filled the Atrium to capacity and overflowed into a line of hopefuls waiting down Broadway.
