Performance! Body! Self! A Lecture (With Some Performance)

In this free public lecture/performance, internationally acclaimed solo performer Tim Miller will address the role performance plays in constellating identity. Known for his charged performance work, which takes up the most challenging social texts of our time, Miller will share fierce and funny performance material as well as speak about how performance can be used to embolden communities and connect people with one another. Miller promises a highly stimulating and opinionated rant with performance about performance, identity, the culture wars, and queer strategies for the future.

Miller is conducting a performance workshop at Bryn Mawr the week of April 16-20; students in the workshop will present their own performance on Friday, April 20.

Hailed for his humor and passion, Miller has presented solo performances all over the world. He is the author of the books Shirts & Skin, Body Blows and 1001 Beds. His theater works have been published in the play collections O Solo Homo: The New Queer Performance (1998) and Sharing the Delirium – Second Generation AIDS Plays and Performances (1993).

Miller has taught performance in the theater departments at UCLA, Cal State LA, the Calremont School of Theology and NYU. He is a founder of Performance Space 122 in NYC and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, CA. Miller can be reached at his website: www.TimMillerPerformer.com.
