  • Celebrate the life of Sam Miller ’75, P’09 (1952–2018) from 2pm to 4:30pm at Wesleyan University's CFA Theater.

    A devoted Wesleyan alum, he majored in theater, co-founded Second Stage, and was one of the first students to direct a production in the newly built Center for the Arts. In 2011, he became the Director and Co-Founder of the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University. Sam was also a close friend of Eiko and Koma's, as well as the founder of the National Dance Project.

    Friends, colleagues, and students will share remarks followed by a performance directed by Eiko (who is also the Visiting Artist in Residence in Dance and the College of East Asian Studies at Wesleyan). She will share her work-in-progress The Duet Project: Distance is Malleable, co-conceived by Sam Miller and created in collaboration with artists of diverse backgrounds and disciplines including Wesleyan alumni Mark McCloughan ’10, Alexis Moh ’15, DonChristian Jones ’12, David Brick ’91, and Ralph Samuelson MA ’71, as well as Professor of History, East Asian Studies, Science in Society, and Environmental Studies William Johnston. Refreshments will follow.

    RSVP online here.
