About

Gallim

For more than a decade, Brooklyn-based Gallim has embodied human connection through bold, raw, transformative works. A former dancer with Batsheva Dance Company and, most recently, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s first choreographic Artist-in-Residence, Artistic Director Andrea Miller has established herself as a perpetually groundbreaking artist who brings unbridled vulnerability and sensitivity to her work. New York Magazine describes, “her viscerally physical movement wrings every inch of life from her dancers—and you’ll be holding your breath, too.” Miller’s most recent commissions include new works for Kyle Abraham’s A.I.M, Pennsylvania Ballet, Ballet Hispánico, and Martha Graham Dance Company.

With uncompromising authenticity, Gallim makes its Ted Shawn Theatre debut with a Pillow-commissioned world premiere that captures the intoxicating ecstasy of dancing and weaves together excerpts from Miller’s most powerful work from over the past ten years, including Pupil, Miller’s first piece for the company, and her most recent work, To Create a World, inspired by her time as an artist-in-residence at the MET Museum. In addition, Gallim performs Boat, a work dedicated to finding hope in the wake of oppression.   

“[We] got very excited about looking at the 10 years of repertory since [our first Pillow performance in] 2008 and finding sections that speak to the spirit of “Pupil,” weaving it into a framework that still holds true to what we were trying to achieve — a world where the body and imagination were liberated, with total freedom to be expressive and wild and uncensored. It’s for eight dancers, and the music varies from classical to really bad-ass contemporary music.” Read more about the Pillow-commissioned world premiere from Andrea Miller in The Boston Globe.
