Bebe Miller

Bebe Miller first performed her choreography at Dance Theater Workshop NYC in 1978. In 1985 she formed Bebe Miller Company to pursue her interest in finding a physical language for the human condition. She has collaborated with artists, composers, writers and designers along with the dancers who share her studio practice and from whom she has learned what dancing can reveal. Her work has been performed in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa, and nationally at Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival, San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, REDCAT in Los Angeles, and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, OH. Her choreography has been performed by Kyle Abraham’s A.I.M. (Abraham In Motion), Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Oregon Ballet Theater, Boston Ballet, Philadanco, Salt Lake City’s Repertory Dance Theater, the UK’s Phoenix Dance Company, and a host of colleges and universities. Over the last decade Bebe Miller Company has been involved in a variety of digital archive projects referencing the company’s creative practice in order to share the choreographic process with audiences and artists. Her latest ebook, How Dancing Is Built: The Making of In A Rhythm, is available online. Bebe is one of the 2012 inaugural class of Doris Duke Artist Award recipients, as well as a 2010 United States Artists Ford Fellow. She has received four New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” awards, was a 2015 Movement Research Gala honoree and a 2020 Danspace Project Gala honoree, to be celebrated in 2021. Bebe was a Professor in The Ohio State University’s Department of Dance from 2000 through 2016, and has received honorary doctorates from Ursinus College and Franklin & Marshall College. She lives in Columbus, Ohio.
