Hamilton College Performing Arts and the Department of Theatre present Tim Miller’s new solo work, Rooted, on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 7:30 p.m., in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center.
Mixing sex and politics, humor and hope, Tim Miller charts the growth of queer citizenship in America and the new challenge of being rooted in resistance to today’s political environment. Rooted is about Central New York history and Miller’s family stories that plant him in the Empire State. It stops along the way at a NYC wedding day, a queer history of hurting hearts, the Department of Homeland Security, the DNA roots that lead Miller to Central NY, and a 1980’s power rock epiphany on a farm road in Yates County. Rooted is a funny and charged story of the times we are living in.
Tim Miller is an internationally acclaimed solo performer. His performance works have been presented all over the world at venues such as Yale Repertory Theatre, London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Walker Art Center and Actors Theatre of Louisville. 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/Theater.
Miller has taught performance at UCLA, NYU, and at Cal State Los Angeles. He cofounded Performance Space 122 in New York City and Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for senior citizens. Material is not suitable for children under age 17. Additional funding comes from the Department of Theatre and the Dietrich Fund.
