A New Dance Film by Andrea Miller and Helix Films based on BOAT

In-demand choreographer Andrea Miller ’s dances emphasize the contrasts of being human—the grotesque and the sublime, the chaos and the elegance, with movement both primal and poetic. Through an innovative creative collaboration with Northrop, Miller’s company, GALLIM, debuts an evocative new dance film adapted from Miller’s 2016 piece BOAT that explores what it looks like, feels like, and means to be searching for home. Featuring the music of Northrop’s pipe organ played by University Organist Dean Billmeyer and the Twin Cities-based PopUp Choir in the score, the film takes viewers on a journey of people becoming undone, floating adrift, holding each other, building bonds, and allowing hope and dignity to grow anew.

— “The choreography of Andrea Miller is extraordinary. You saw how humans are really built to interlock." (Zeid Raad Al Hussein, Former UN High Commissioner of Human Rights, about Boat)

— “The blend of the music coming to life through the dancers’ movements and the dance being imagined while listening to the harmonic offerings made for a sensory feast.” (The Dance Enthusiast about Boat)

— “At once haunting and hopeful, Miller knows not to glamorize the horror; instead, her images of strength, frailty, and collages are depicted with great beauty by her trained, eloquent dancers, it’s a beauty that seems to say: see the humanity, remember the hope. Love versus hate.” (The Boston Globe)
