A Celebration of the Life of Sam Miller (1952-2018)

On September 15, 2018, the dance community came together at Danspace Project to honor the life of Sam Miller, who passed away on May 1, 2018. Sam was a close friend of Eiko and Koma's, as well as the founder of the National Dance Project and the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (ICPP) at Wesleyan University along with many other impactful cultural initiatives across the US.

The event, which included remarks, offerings, and performances by Sam's friends, family, and dance community, was organized by Ralph Lemon, Judy Hussie-Taylor, and the Danspace Project team. Eiko and Koma performed separately, and together. See the full list of performers and speakers.
