Legendary dancer and choreographer Bebe Miller’s suite of new works is based on the dynamics of adaptation and translation. With nods to literary giants Toni Morrison, David Foster Wallace, and Gertrude Stein, Miller examines the syntax of movement—how we apprehend meaning—by juxtaposing action and context in time and space to create a new dynamic dimension on stage.

Bebe Miller has received four New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Awards and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, Guggenheim Foundation and many others. She was a United States Artists Ford Fellow, received one of the first Doris Duke Artists Awards and a New York Live Arts’ 2013 David White Award, and was a 2015 Movement Research Honoree. Bebe Miller Company was formed in 1985; since then, Miller has created more than 50 dance works for the company that have been performed in nearly 400 engagements worldwide. BMC has been commissioned and presented by leading venues including 651 ARTS, BAM Next Wave, DTW, Jacob’s Pillow, Joyce Theater, PICA, REDCAT, Walker Art Center, and Wexner Center for the Arts. A Distinguished Professor in Dance at The Ohio State University’s College of Arts and Humanities from 2000–2016, Miller received an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Ursinus College in 2009.
