Alive & Kicking Program #73 – Tim Miller’s “Body Blows” #2 – features more excerpts from a performance by America’s premier gay performance artist based on a new book of the same name. “Body Blows” explores the tangible body blows – ones taken and ones given – of Tim Miller’s life & times. From a first kiss to a hostile fist, Miller’s performances are full of the “put-up-your dukes and stand-your-ground” response to such day to day blows that makes up being queer in America. In BODY BLOWS, Tim Miller raises his voice to honor the Slings and Eros of outrageous queer fortune. “In BODY BLOWS Miller floats and struts across the stage like a rock singer, a highly physical performance style that helps him achieve the Whitman-like sense of ecstatic illumination he aims for.” (The Chicago Reader) This program also features additional commentary by Tim Miller on his life and artistic process.
