Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts today announced the world premiere of You Are Here, a public sculpture, sound, and live performance installation conceived by Andrea Miller, award-winning choreographer and artistic director of movement-based production company GALLIM. The commission is supported by the Arnhold Dance Innovation Fund (ADIF) and will be presented as part of Restart Stages, beginning July 14, 2021. https://www.lincolncenter.org/lincoln-center-at-home/show/you-are-here-696. In a process that invites co-creation with the Lincoln Center site and local New York community, Miller continues her investigation of the human pursuit of understanding through the alchemy of performance in this ambitious work that focuses on processing this past year. Throughout the end of July, the campus will become a site for communion as we find our way through a pandemic and multiple civic crises. Restart Stages is part of the SNF-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), which activates outdoor space through artistic and community initiatives that speak to our current moment and reimagines public space for a new era.  Visitors will first exper... more

Throughout the end of July, the campus will become a site for communion as we find our way through a pandemic and multiple civic crises.

Restart Stages is part of the SNF-Lincoln Center Agora Initiative with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), which activates outdoor space through artistic and community initiatives that speak to our current moment and reimagines public space for a new era. 

Visitors will first experience You Are Here as a sculpture and sound installation on the iconic Josie Robertson and Hearst Plazas. Sculptures created by Tony Award-winning scenic designer Mimi Lien will stand in the space of the human beings; each sculpture will house a speaker through which the audio portraits of New Yorkers are projected. Sound artist Justin Hicks will create this aural garden that stretches across the footprint of the installation. Artists, ushers, security guards, educators, and other staff members from within the Lincoln Center family alongside New Yorkers from across the city will tell a story, dance, sing, breathe, or reflect — offering a window into their experiences.

During the second half of the installation, the audio portraits will gradually be replaced by live performances by the participants. Live performances will each feature several portraits now brought to life in Hearst Plaza, with choreography created by Andrea Miller and performed by GALLIM dancers. The final evening of the installation will feature all of the performers live and on-site. The project is designed with inclusion integrated throughout so that all guests, including those with disabilities, can experience the work.

"I was inspired to create You Are Here in the plazas," said Andrea Miller. "Creating a performance is an essential expression of hope, and this piece is a practice of sharing and witnessing each other, of placemaking in the heart of an art center, and art-making in the eye of a global storm. It's a way for me to honor artists and the huge unseen community that makes the arts possible, that makes this labor of rebuilding possible. The title describes it best, I think, I hope."
