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

"excellent, inventive, impressive" —New York Times

The first choreographer as Artist in Residence at The Met, Andrea Miller, founder and artistic director of Gallim, created new works designed to engage with the Museum's galleries and great spaces. Miller closed her residency with six days of performances of (C)arbon, an anthropological study of the body that took over the entire fifth floor of The Met Breuer. In this work, each gallery was dedicated to the body as experience (individual, dual relations, and en masse). The performances took place simultaneously, repeated three times, so all could be viewed. Watch performances of Survive; Love, Collide; and Mass.

(C)arbon was presented at The Met Breuer, May 18–24, 2018, in conjunction with the exhibition Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body (1300–Now), on view at The Met Breuer, March 21–July 22, 2018.

Performances and open rehearsals of (C)arbon were presented free with Museum admission.

The world premiere of (C)arbon was made possible by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky, with additional support from Jody and John Arnhold, and the Muriel Kallis Steinberg Newman Fund.

Open rehearsals were supported by Jody and John Arnhold, and The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation.

Stone Skipping was presented in The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing at The Met Fifth Avenue on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, 2017.

The residency was made possible by the Chester Dale Fund.
