About this title

Synopsis:

For 20 years, performance artist Miller has been sharing his life with audiences around the world, baring his soul (and his body) while exploring the sexual, spiritual, and political aspects of his life as a gay man. The six pieces in this anthology of performances, including "My Queer Body," "Naked Breath," "Fruit Cocktail," and "Glory Hole," all reveal Miller's life journey and the "body blows" he has taken and given in a society that both embraces and rejects the gay experience. Miller's audiences are captivated by his ability to relate very personal stories to their own lives and to make them feel both the joy and the pain of being gay. Photographs and commentary by Miller accompany the depiction of each performance. Readers of this book will find it to be the next best thing to attending one of his performances. Miller teaches performance at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Theater and cofounded Performance Space 122 (New York City) and Highways Performance Space (Santa Monica, CA). Recommended for theater arts collections in public and academic libraries.
