CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Internationally acclaimed performance artist Tim Miller will perform a highly stimulating and opinionated rant with performances about identity, the culture wars and queer strategies for the future at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Dec. 9, in the Bertha Martin Theatre in Strayer Wood Theatre on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

"Miller offers a nuanced perspective on self and identification," said Evan Schares, a graduate assistant in UNI's Department of Communication Studies. "Attendees of his performance will be afforded a multitude of lenses with which to explore the intersections of their own identity."

Miller has created several works exploring the artistic, spiritual and political topography of his identity as a gay man. His lecture is free and open to the public. It's sponsored by UNI's Interpreters Theatre, Students Against a Violent Environment (SAVE), the Department of Communication Studies, Department of Art, Department of Theatre, and the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences.
