Speak the Truth Even if Your Voice Shakes
Original solo performance pieces presented by participants in Tim Miller's weeklong performance workshop at Bryn Mawr College.
Written, embodied, concocted and performed by Sam Fox , Marissa Gibson-Garcia, Jacqueline Handy, Nicole Huber, Qi'er Luo, Shauna MacDonald, Elizabeth Marafino, Emily Mayer, Kaitlin Mitchell, Sara Neidorf, Nga Nguyen, Kate O'Brien, Katherine Portelli, Madeline Reynolds, Heidi Rose, Yinan Shentu, Julia Vasko, Lori Vetrano, and Marissa Weber, and Adam West.
"This week-long performance workshop I am leading here at BMC is a charged exploration into creating original performance work from our lives, dreams, obsessions, social visions, memories and desires. It is a great pleasure and inspiration to create our community for a short time and jump into this original ensemble work exploring this time we are in," says Miller.
"The search for the narratives of the body is a crucial beginning to knowing ourselves and can be a juicy motor for creating original performance material. I want to thank the artists for diving in so bravely and being ready to dig that extra foot (or mile!) into these gnarly, moist and tricky terrains!"
Miller gave his own performance/talk at Bryn Mawr the evening before this performance, on Thursday, April 19.
