The Arts and Design Research Incubator (ADRI) in the College of Arts and Architecture will host a “performance, lecture and rant” by internationally acclaimed performance artist Tim Miller on Friday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. in 16 Borland Building.

In the presentation, Performance! Body! Self!, Miller will perform excerpts from his work and speak about the role performance plays in constellating identity.  

Hailed for his humor and passion, Tim Miller's solo performances have been presented all over the world. He is the author of the books Shirts and Skin, Body Blows and 1001 Beds. His theater works have been published in the play collections O Solo Homo: The New Queer Performance (1998) and Sharing the Delirium – Second Generation AIDS Plays and Performances (1993). Miller has taught performance in the theater departments at UCLA, Cal State Los Angeles and NYU. He is a founder of Performance Space 122 in New York City and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, CA.

Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America, said, "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!”
