Andrea Miller, Artistic Director
Andrea Miller's Blush expands the sudden moment of
blushing into a sixty-minute flood. Dense with emotional rawness
and physical exertion, this intimate work chases one of the most
elusive human expressions—the blush—through stress and raptures as
it melts to the edges of the skin.
Set in a boxing ring-like arena, Blush unravels to the music of Mannyfingers, Andrej Przybytkowski, Chopin, Kap Bambino, Arvo Part, and Wolf Parade.
Gallim Dance, a Brooklyn-based contemporary dance company founded in 2007, creates and performs new work worldwide. Since its 2009 premiere, Blush has toured nationally and internationally to the highest critical acclaim, and received the 2011 National Dance Project Touring Award. This May, Blush returns to New York City for the first time since its world premiere.
This event is presented by Gallim Dance. Regular BAM house and ticketing policies may not apply.
