Gallim Dance to perform at The Dance Center
Gallim Dance will be presented at The Dance Center (1306 S. Michigan Ave.) on October 11-13 at 8:00pm.
Founded in 2006 by
choreographer Andrea Miller, a former Ensemble Batsheva dancer, New York
City-based Gallim Dance will perform Blush,
a visceral and invigorating full-evening work set to a score ranging from
Chopin to electro punk. Drawing on Butoh and ballet, six dancers covered in white paint increasingly make contact; as icy
movement melt into achingly tender moments. Dense with emotion and physical
exertion, the explosive raw power of Blush
eventually exposes the dancers' rosy flesh, and the ecstasy of their existence.
"Miller’s work is
wrenching and moving and even though you might need a period of recovery
afterwards, you’ll find that her works beckon for repeated viewings. " - Dance Europe
"[Blush] dares you not to get caught up in
its delicious strangeness, fierce aggression and raw beauty." - New York Press
