Bebe Miller, The Making Room
92 backers pledged $8,141 to support this project on Kickstarter.
Performance audiences see the final production, but rarely are they afforded the opportunity to see how the work came to be. To give viewers a glimpse, choreographers Bebe Miller and Susan Rethorst teamed up to create The Making Room, which invites everyone into the process of creating a new performance. Brought to life by 92 backers on Kickstarter, the project hosted a live performance and created a virtual platform to break down, dissect, and discuss two works from premise to premiere: Miller’s In a Rhythm and Rethorst’s Stealing from Myself. “We understand these bytes of kinetic information because we, as humans, move,” Miller says. “For me, figuring out how to capture and share all parts of the creative process is a fascinating project in itself.”
