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 theatre, visual art, film, and political philosophy.
The mission of Gallim Dance is to play inside the imagination—to find juxtapositions of the mind and body that resonate in the soul, to investigate our limitations and pleasures, and to realize the endless human capacity for inspiration.
