Miro Dance Theatre tries a new, less restrictive name on for size

Dana Dlugosz performs in Miller Rothlein’s debut, “Still Life.”

For more than a decade, Amanda Miller and Tobin Rothlein have combined movement with a variety of other media, from video to visual art to live performance and even quantum physics. Since founding Miro Dance Theatre in 2004, the name has come to seem ever more inadequate to describe what the company does. So this weekend, they’ll re-emerge as Miller Rothlein with a new show, “Still Life: just under 42 very small performances and installations.”

“We started to see our work really blossom and exist outside the confines of the dance world,” Miller explains. “I feel like this is the iteration of the company that we’ve been working towards for the past 13 years. It allows us to take ownership of all the projects that we do and not have to figure out if it fits into the framework of the company.”

“Still Life,” as the lengthy subtitle suggests, consists of several miniature performances and video installations, performed in an immersive gallerylike setting. “I think it’s a good introduction because it shows the new edges of the company,” Rothlein says of the piece. “The main concept is looking at that old-fashioned idea of having a painting on your wall that’s supposed to represent something beautiful, and applying that to the areas we explore that are hard to depict pictorially.”
