The O'Shaughnessy and Northrop Concerts and Lectures present Bebe Miller Company, A Women of Substance at St. Catherine University event, on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, at 7:30 p.m.

Bebe Miller has been making dances for over 25 years, forming Bebe Miller Company in 1985. Known for a mix of virtuosic dancing and fundamental humanity, her choreography has been produced at major dance centers throughout the world.

Miller’s vision of dance and performance reside in her faith in the moving body as a record of thought, experience, and sheer beauty. Her aesthetic relies on the interplay of a work’s idea, its physicality, and the contributions of company members to fashion its singular voice. 

A History is a new dance work choreographed by Bebe Miller in collaboration with longtime Bebe Miller Company members Angie Hauser and Darrell Jones, as well as dramaturg Talvin Wilks and video artist Lily Skove. A History viscerally captures the threads of BMC’s creative conversation in live performance and media. This guerrilla mode— nimble, strategic, with multiple points of entry— delivers  the interactive spontaneity of truly accessible theater.

Tickets to the performance are $18, $25, or $31 for adults, and $14, $21, or $27 for seniors 65 and up, students, UMN or SCU community members and alumni and the military. Rush tickets will be available on the day of show, at the door only, for UMN/SCU Students at $10, and for UMN/SCU faculty and staff, and all other students at $20. Ticket prices include a $2 restoration fee.

A post-performance conversation with the artists will take place immediately following each Women of Substance performance, part of the dance series at The O'Shaughnessy.
