July 22, 2019 — (Becket, MA) Gallim makes its Ted Shawn Theatre debut with a Pillow co-commissioned world premiere, August 7-11. Under the direction of perpetually groundbreaking artist Andrea Miller, Brooklyn-based Gallim embodies human connection through bold, raw,transformative works. As New York Magazine attests, “her viscerally physical movement wrings every inch of life from her dancers—and you’ll be holding your breath, too.” The world premiere of True, very weaves together excerpts from Miller’s most fascinating work from over the past ten years—including Pupil, Miller’s first piece for Gallim, and her most recent work, To Create a World, inspired by her time as an artist-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In addition, Gallim performs Boat, a work dedicated to those searching for hope in the wake of oppression.
“I’m thrilled to see this Pillow co-commissioned work come to life as Gallim performs in the Ted Shawn Theatre for their first time,” says Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge. “In addition, Boat is certainly an important work to present at this particular time in our history, and is sure to captivate audiences.”
