2017–18 Artist in Residence: Gallim

"Her viscerally physical movement wrings every inch of life from her dancers—and you’ll be holding your breath, too."—New York Magazine

The first choreographer as Artist in Residence at The Met, Andrea Miller will make her mark with ambitious multidisciplinary works. Miller, choreographer, founder, and artistic director of Gallim, will be creating new works designed to engage with the Museum’s galleries and great spaces, including Stone Skipping—a site-specific work for The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing. This choreographic conversation with the temple explores its multifaceted journey from Egypt to New York City, as well as from temple to artifact, and evokes our own human experience and environmental footprints.
