Climb along with performer Tim Miller inside the giant O of the Hollywood sign—or as Shakespeare conjured it “the wooden O” of all theatre and performance—where we try to take on the big themes of our time. Miller performs a new work created from his brand new book of performances and stories A BODY IN THE O.
Jumping off from a day in 1984 when Miller scrambled up inside of the O of the Hollywood sign and imagined the performance space tree house of his dreams (Performance Space New York and Highways Performance Space in L.A.), A BODY IN THE O journeys through the hoops of the Department of Homeland Security, a queer boy’s truth-telling, a performance at Performance Space 122 in 1980 and finally a wedding day in NYC in 2013 as Miller imagines the full possibility of performance that changes the world inside these wooden Os!
