KENNESAW, Ga.—On Nov. 11, renowned performance artist Tim Miller will be the guest of the Kennesaw State University Department of Theatre, Performance Studies & Dance. For the event, "In Conversation with Tim Miller," Miller will speak to students about his performances and developing work as a solo artist. He will also be performing excerpts from his work. The event is from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. in the Black Box Theater in the Wilson Annex and is free and open to the public.
"It's a privilege to see a great artist perform, but it's a rare treat to hear that person talk about their work and process in an informal setting," says Charles Parrott, KSU assistant professor and coordinator of the event.
Miller has performed widely across the United States and internationally since the early 1980s. Considered by many to be the nation’s preeminent queer solo performer, Miller is the recipient of several grants from the National Endowment
for Arts and has taught performance across the country. Miller currently focuses his political and creative energy on the fight for marriage equality in America.
"The audience can expect to be embraced by this very warm performer. I have met and worked with Tim and he is, hands down, the most charming and supportive performer I've ever met," explains Parrott.
Miller’s visit to KSU occurs simultaneously with his four-night engagement of his
new show, "Lay of the Land," at 7 Stages Theatre in Atlanta.
The talk and performance contains adult subject matter. This event is
intended for mature audiences only.
