CLOSE QUARTERS: EPISODE 13
George Miller is a director of opera, dance, installation, events, and film. His work and process is largely focused on creating multifaceted, interdisciplinary, and dramatic happenings in fine art performance.
This season, George’s work will be presented by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (CLOSE QUARTERS), DorDor Gallery New York, The Juilliard School, and OZ Arts Nashville, among others.
George has worked with organizations and people such as the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, American Modern Opera Company (AMOC), New Dialect and Banning Bouldin, Beth Morrison Projects, PROTOTYPE Festival, Studio 153 (Red Hook), The Brooklyn Museum, James Darrah, Peter Sellars, Zack Winokur, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Kevin Newbury, artist Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, OZ Arts Nashville, Savvy Contemporary (Berlin), Festival d’Aix-en-Provence (FR), MET Live Arts, and the Ravinia Festival.
Recently, George’s production of a new opera dance-theatre adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, titled STRANGE NATURE was presented in works-in-process stagings in Nashville, TN, and fully staged immersive performances at Studio 153 in Red Hook, Brooklyn – this adaptation combines contemporary classical music, modern dance, and critically informed design, to tell a tragic story of social practice and alienation.
Upcoming projects include CLOSE QUARTERS // BRITTEN + REID with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, EWARTUNG // EXPECTATION with singer Timothy McDevitt and pianist Renate Rohlfing, PRISM with choreographer David Flores and OZ Arts Nashville, FACE(S) OF GOD with performance-artist Rix Chan, choreographer Matilda Sakamoto, composer Katie Jenkins, and fashion-designer Terrence Zhou, and CABARET with music director and songwriter Beaven Waller.
