Rooted: a Tim Miller Performance


McGlothlin Center for the Arts (MCA) — 30481 Garnand Dr.


Rooted: by Tim Miller

In his brand new performance Rooted, internationally renowned performance artist Tim Miller tells stories of family trees and the hidden LGBT histories that live in those branches. Jumping off from June 26 , 2013 when marriage equality was established in the U.S. under federal law, Miller launches into an exploration of the gorgeous perversity of obsessive genealogical research; and what happens when, after long effort, we actually achieve one kind of social change (in this case, marriage equality) that allows us to launch new journeys for wider social justice.  With humor and heart, in "Rooted" Miller charts the hopeful, ever-branching reach of love and citizenship in America.

 Hailed for its humor and passion, Tim Miller's solo performance work has delighted and emboldened audiences all over the world. He is the author of the books SHIRTS & SKIN,  BODY BLOWS and 1001 BEDS, an anthology of his performances and essays which won the 2007 Lambda Literary Award for best book in Drama-Theatre.  Miller has taught performance at UCLA, NYU and Claremont School of Theology. He is the co- founder of Performance Space 122 in NYC and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica, CA.  He can be reached at his website.
