We are raising $5,000 over the next 30 days to realize Gallim’s first ever site-specific work, eight by eight, an unprecedented commission for and collaboration with the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. eight by eight is set to premiere October 9th as part of Target® Free Thursdays, with an encore performance on October 10th.

about eight by eight

The David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center chose Gallim Dance to collaborate in their most ambitious commission to date. 2014 Guggenheim Fellow and Choreographer Andrea Miller will bring the public space in contact with the gravitational and intimate behavior of two people constrained to an 8 ft. x 8 ft. cube. Miller will also collaborate with a video and projection artist to recreate the captured story of these two people inside the cube. The projections and the performers will be framed in harmony and conflict with the architecture of the Atrium.

how you can help make eight by eight a reality

Because this installation is free and open to the public, your support is critical to its creation and performance. By making a donation at any level, you will help Gallim and all of our collaborators to:

    • Build the cube, a focal point in the space, able to fit and withstand the impact of two people.
    • Create video and projection, framed by the architecture of the atrium. This media collaboration exposes elements of the narrative of the duet.
    • Make it possible for Gallim to bring the work to more non-traditional venues, further fulfilling our mission to bring dance to diverse audiences around the world.


eight by eight will only be funded if at least $5,000 is pledged by Wednesday, September 24th, 3:00pm EDT.

We thank you in advance for your investment and support. We can’t wait to see you at the World Premiere of eight by eight on October 9th and 10th, 2014!



Upon receiving the Guggenheim Fellowship Award from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, I would like to share warmest thanks with the Gallim dancers, current and past administrative teams, as well as the many individuals, presenters, commissioners, partners, donors, and foundations who have provided me with tremendous support, creativity and inspiration.

Join Gallim Dance’s exciting creative journey in 2014!

2014 promises to be another stellar year with exciting artistic highlights:

  • Wide-reaching national and international tours to the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, Dancers’ Workshop – Jackson Hole, Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City, Spain’s Grec Festival de Barcelona, and many more
  • A new commission from Barnard College at Columbia University, and Hermes Paris
  • The world premiere of a site-specific dance installation at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center

We rely on the generosity of friends like you so that we may continue creating award-winning art. I hope you will join in our exuberant art-making and entrepreneurial growth by making a fully tax-deductible donation. 

We thank our donors who gave us so much to celebrate in 2013, including the world premiere of Andrea’s most ambitious work to date, Fold Here, a sold-out season of Blush at BAM’s new Fisher Theater, 39 national and international performances for 15,500 audience members, and recognition for artistic excellence and outstanding entrepreneurship from Crain’s New York, The New York Times, and PBS NewsHour.

We sincerely thank you for your generosity, and cannot wait to see you at our upcoming performances and events!
