Join us this July to experience the world premiere of You Are Here, a public sculpture, sound, and live performance installation conceived by Andrea Miller, award-winning multidisciplinary artist and artistic director of GALLIM, a New York-based company producing movement works for theater, film, and installation. You Are Here takes on the processing of the past year, coming together to share story, dance, song, and reflections from members within the Lincoln Center family including an educator, an usher, a security guard, an opera singer, an NYCB apprentice all alongside awe-inspiring New Yorkers from across the city.
The commission is supported by the Arnhold Dance Innovation Fund and is presented at Restart Stages at Lincoln Center. Restart Stages is part of the SNF-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), which activates outdoor space through artistic and community initiatives that speak to our current moment and reimagines public space for a new era.
Visitors first experience You Are Here as a sculpture and sound installation, open to the general public, at Hearst Plaza on July 14–19 and July 21–23. Each sculpture, created by scenic designer Mimi Lien, houses a speaker through which audio portraits of New Yorkers are projected. Sound artist Justin Hicks has created this aural garden that stretches across the footprint of the installation.
From July 24–30, the audio portraits are gradually replaced by live performances by the Lincoln Center and New York community participants (tickets available through TodayTix Lottery), each featuring several portraits now brought to life, co-directed by Andrea Miller and Lynsey Peisinger, with choreography by Miller—performed by GALLIM dancers.
