Gallim Dance is partnering with lead commissioner Montclair State University Peak Performances Series and co-commissioner Dancers Workshop Jackson Hole on the creation and premiere of Andrea Miller’s new work, Fold Here. In collaboration with British set designer Jon Bausor, Israeli video artist Tal Rosner, and American lighting designer Robert Wierzel, Fold Here unfolds in an implausible universe filled with empty cardboard boxes as the basic units of all existing matter. In pursuit of the boxes’ elusive essence, the performers explore the physical, sensorial and spiritual properties of human beings—as parallel contents and containers of existence. Miller’s Fold Here was initially inspired by Raymond Carver’s short story Cathedral, in which a sightful man’s hand is guided by a blind man’s heart in drawing a cathedral.
