Andrea Miller, who has been on the dance world fast track since she began choreographing five years ago, will make her Peak Performances debut with the world premiere of “Fold Here”, Sept. 26 – 29 at the Alexander Kasser Theater, Montclair State University.
Inspired by Raymond Chandler’s short story “Cathedral” and performed by her company Gallim Dance, “Fold Here” considers the conceptual, physical and mystical properties of a cardboard box as a cathedral with which her dancers interact as they construct a work of their own. Like all of Miller’s dances, “Fold Here” is physically dramatic, mining the deep emotional and theatrical resources of her riveting dancers.
During its incubation process, Miller and the Gallim Dance Company have visited numerous locations to complete the project, including Sadler’s Wells in London, Dancer’s Workshop in Jackson Hole, WY, and right here in Montclair during an intensive 3 week August residency at the Alexander Kasser Theater.

In addition to the world premiere in Montclair, Gallim Dance Company will be appearing at the Guggenheim Museum on Sept. 22 and 23, as part of the Guggenheim’s innovative Works & Process Series. Works & Process is a series that explores artistic creation through conversation and performance excerpts in the Guggenheim’s intimate Peter B. Lewis Theater.
