Performing ArtGAMBIER, Ohio (February 18, 2010) Los Angeles-based performance artist Tim Miller brings his solo production with a gay-marriage theme to Kenyon College on Friday at 8:00 p.m. in the Bolton Theater.
Lay of the Land considers gay civil rights and marriage equality. The performance was described in a review by the Los Angeles Times as "a vivid, must-see achievement." The review adds that Miller "lays out his unapologetically renegade viewpoint with exemplary economy and sardonic humor."
On his Web site, Miller said, "Lay of the Land feels super-strong and mega-timely in its engagement of marriage equality and the tipping point we are reaching around gay civil rights in this country. "
Miller will also do a reading and answer questions in a free event on Tuesday, February 23, at 11:10 a.m. in Ascension Hall (room 222).
Miller's work has been hailed for its humor and passion. He has performed around the world, including at the Yale Repertory Theatre, the London Institute of Contemporary Art, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music Next Wave Festival. He is a co-founder of Performance Space 122 in New York City and Performance Space in Santa Monica, Calif., and has taught performance at the University of California, Los Angeles, and New York University.
