Remembering Sam Miller '75

CFA Theater

FREE! RSVP requested.

Celebrate the life of Sam Miller ’75, P’09 (1952–2018) from 2pm to 4:30pm.

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.

Friends, colleagues, and students will share remarks followed by a performance directed by his long-time collaborator Eiko Otake, Visiting Artist in Residence in Dance and the College of East Asian Studies. 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, 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. The project will premiere at the American Dance Festival in July. Refreshments will follow.

RSVP online here.
