UH students collaborate with Tim Miller to create "Body Maps", a new ensemble work about identity and memory.

Doors open at 5 p.m., seating is first-come, first-served.

In Body Maps, a group of UH theatre and dance students will present an original piece directed by internationally-acclaimed solo performer Tim Miller. Known for his charged performance work that takes up the most challenging social texts of our time, Miller believes that performance can be used to embolden communities and connect people with one another. He states, “My goal is to share a variety of strategies to create original performances from the tremendous energies and stories that are present in our lives.”

Miller will be in residence at UHM March 11-15, 2013 and will work with UH Theatre and Dance students to create this original ensemble piece.

Miller calls the Body Maps process an “exciting and charged exploration into creating original performance work from our lives, dreams, obsessions, memories and desires.” Using the students’ own memories and myths as a jumping off point, the piece will use a deep sense of personal history to create performance.

The performance is sponsored by T.A.D.A. (Theatre and Dance Association), with funding from the Student Activity and Program Fee Board and the Diversity and Equity Initiative. The workshop co-sponsored by the UHM Department of Theatre and Dance and the Department of Women's Studies and LGBTI Student Services.

Hailed for his humor and passion, Tim Miller's solo performances have been presented 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 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
