BODY MAPS, PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP INTENSIVE – Tim Miller
with Tim Miller
THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR PEOPLE TO GATHER TOGETHER AND EXPLORE CREATING ORIGINAL PERFORMANCES
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. Using our own memories and myths as a jumping off point, we will see where a deep sense of personal history creates performance that jumps out from our bodies onto the stage or the page.
This performance workshop welcomes performers at all levels of experience, artists, activists, queer-identified and queer-allied folks to come together to create an original performance that maps the charged border between our bodies and society…our personal narratives and our politics…our private selves and public view. Over the course of one week, we will shape our discoveries into a public performance. Our work will be a fun and charged exploration into creating original performance work from our personal lives: from our dreams, obsessions, peeves, memories and desires. Telling our own story doesn’t separate us from other people, it connects us.
We will work intensively for a week and the workshop will culminate in an ensemble-generated public performance from your fierce creativity! Please bring your hearts and brains, hopes and fears.

ALSO BY TIM MILLER
Mixing sex and politics, humor and hope, Miller charts the growth of queer citizenship in America and the new challenge of being rooted in Resistance to today’s Trumped-up political environment. ROOTED is about New York history and Miller’s family stories that plant him in the Empire State with stops along the way at a NYC wedding day, a queer history of hurting hearts, the Dept of Homeland Security , the DNA roots that lead Miller to Central NY, and an 80s power rock epiphany on a NY farm road in Yates County. Rooted is a funny and charged story of the times we are living in.
