PHILADELPHIA – April 14, 2009 – A new dance and video performance from
Philadelphia’s Miro Dance Theatre takes on topics that not even Einstein could fully
understand. When confronted with the seemingly unexplainable relationship that
quantum particles exhibited, even over long distances, he called the phenomenon
“spooky action at a distance.”

That relationship – and strikingly similar relationships between people – is explored in
Miro’s new original work, “Spooky Action,” which premieres in Philadelphia at the
Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts on May 9 and 10.

The production is a seamless integration of contemporary dance, choreographed by
critically acclaimed dancer and choreographer Amanda Miller, and cutting-edge video
projection, created by filmmaker and video producer Tobin Rothlein. The video,
projected onto high-tech backdrops which are intermittently opaque and transparent, acts
as a fifth dancer to complement Miro’s four live dancers – Dana Dlugosz, Joy Havens, Scott Lowe and Paul Struck – on stage.
