East Village Caravanserai Presents A New Performance By Tim Miller, "A Body In The O."
Climb along with performer Tim Miller inside the giant O of the Hollywood sign as he performs a new work created from his brand-new book of performances and stories, "A Body In The O."
Jumping off from a day in 1984 when Miller scrambled up inside the O of the Hollywood sign and imagined the performance space of his dreams (Highways in Santa Monica), "A Body In The O" journeys through the hoops of the Department of Homeland Security, the human heart’s mysterious Os and, finally, a wedding day, as Miller imagines the full possibility of performance that changes the world!
“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
“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
