A BODY IN THE O
- January 25 | 7pm
“For an entire generation of queer artists working in the experimental theater world—including me—Tim Miller led the way. His imagination, daring and vision continue to inspire us.”—Moisés Kaufman, author of The Laramie Project
Climb along with performer Tim Miller inside the giant O of the Hollywood sign – or as Shakespeare conjured it “the wooden O” of all theatre and performance–where we try to take on the big themes of our time. Miller performs a new work created from his brand new book of performances and stories A BODY IN THE O. 40 years on from when Tim Miller co-founded Performance Space 122 and was then co-director for the first three years of Performance Space, Miller now returns to a most crucial performance “O” of Performance Space New York!
Jumping off from a day in 1984 when Miller scrambled up inside of the O of the Hollywood sign and imagined the performance space tree house of his dreams (Performance Space New York and Highways Performance Space in L.A.), A BODY IN THE O journeys through the hoops of the Department of Homeland Security, a queer boy’s truth-telling, a performance at Performance Space 122 in 1980 and finally a wedding day in NYC in 2013 as Miller imagines the full possibility of performance that changes the world inside these wooden Os!
