Rapid Response: GALLIM's Trip to Luxembourg

Andrea Lodico Welshons reflects on GALLIM's performance at Le Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg, with support from American Dance Abroad's Rapid Response program.
The next deadline for Rapid Response is September 1, 2018.

"In June 2018, Rapid Response provided essential support for Gallim's engagement to return to Les Grands Theatre de la Ville de Luxembourg, following a successful January 2017 performance. With essential co-production support from Les Grand Theatre, Gallim conducted a weeklong technical residency and two performances, sharing Stone Skipping in its world premiere on a proscenium. The experience transformed the work and enabled the piece to have a life beyond the Met. It engaged broad, local audiences who had eagerly awaited the company’s return. Support from American Dance Abroad's Rapid Response program bolstered a strong foundation to embark on this important engagement that advanced Artistic Director & Choreographer Andrea Miller's creative vision of reaching new audiences. 

The recent engagement in Luxembourg ensured that Gallim had the opportunity to strengthen an important relationship with an international presenter and increase visibility as a company that attracts audiences in the European cultural landscape. Return engagements like this one are invaluable to a company's ability to bolster its network of audiences and champions in a community. Since Gallim was on-site for a week, Miller and dancers had the chance to nurture relationships with presenting staff and audience members throughout the company's visit. We hope this foundation of support and high level of engagement will enable Gallim to return to Luxembourg and to nearby presenters in the future, continuing the company's strong record of touring and performances throughout Europe." –
