About the Workshop |
Workshop theme - dance, the art of changes and dynamics
In the workshop we will work on several elements:
Directions in space and using them to create a feeling
Speed as a use of authenticity, a poignant statement and appreciation from the audience
Everything happens on stage - how do you use every minute of the work on a work that is based on a lot of movement and less play
Do I remember or do I feel?
We will go over challenging materials and after experiencing the inherent difficulty in answering these questions in the context of performing, creating choreography, what concerns me as a creator - or in a dilemma- why I like to make life difficult.

Bach, and "Speed of Light," a work for 8 dancers based on improvisation throughout the work

In 2017, Miller again created and produced "About Us" in the "Fourth Floor" project, in cooperation with the Fresco Dance Company,
These days he is working on creating a new trio.
Michael loves to create compositions that break apart and make up themselves, like living some internal software.
It is important for me to have an emotionally flowing movement that impacts the viewer to the point of jumping onto the stage and joining the dance.
