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.
RUNTIME: Approximately 60 minutes total, including films and discussion
