Art Now: Tim Miller: PERFORMANCE! BODY! SELF! A performance, lecture & rant

Free and Open to the Public

Internationally-acclaimed solo performer Tim Miller is known for his charged performances that tackle challenging social issues, including the culture wars, performance of identity, and queer strategies for the future. Miller shares fierce and funny performance excerpts and speaks about how performance can be used to embolden communities and connect people with one another.

“Tim Miller sings that song of the self which interrogates, with explosive, exploding, subversive joy and freedom, the constitution and borderlines of selfhood. You think you don’t need to hear such singing? You do! You must!”  – Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America
