Founded in 2006 by choreographer Andrea Miller, a former Ensemble Batsheva dancer, New York City-based Gallim Dance will perform Blush, a visceral and invigorating full-evening work set to a score ranging from Chopin to electro punk. Drawing on Butoh and ballet, six dancers covered in white paint increasingly make contact; as icy movement melt into achingly tender moments. Dense with emotion and physical exertion, the explosive raw power of Blush eventually exposes the dancers' rosy flesh, and the ecstasy of their existence.
"Miller’s work is wrenching and moving and even though you might need a period of recovery afterwards, you’ll find that her works beckon for repeated viewings. " - Dance Europe
