Bebe Miller: Tracing History

Thu, Aug 23, 2012Sat, Sept 29, 2012
Repeats every week every Sunday and every Tuesday and every Wednesday and every Thursday and every Friday and every Saturday until Sat Sep 29 2012 .

Explore the innovations of renowned choreographer and dancer Bebe Miller, a Wexner Center Artist Residency Award recipient in performing arts for 2012–13.

This exhibition marks the 25th anniversary of Miller’s company and complements the world premiere of A History, Miller’s latest project, at the Wexner Center September 27–30. Tracing History brings together costumes, sets, notation, rehearsal and performance documentation, music, conversations with peers, and a new installation by New York City video artist Maya Ciarrocchi to take you inside Miller’s ideas and her achievements, from her earliest days as part of the downtown New York City contemporary dance scene to her current dual role as company leader and Ohio State faculty member. Organized by the Wexner Center’s Jerry Dannemiller, through a project developed at the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, the show is accompanied by lecture/demonstrations, tours, gallery talks, and informal Thursday evening gatherings. See the Urban Arts Space website (uas.osu.edu) for details.
