FUNDarte, the Miami-Dade County Auditorium, and Siren arts, present Climakaze Miami 2021 featuring the performance Mermaid Truth or Consequences: A Biodiversity Game Show by Elizabeth Doud, on August 21st at 8:00 p.m. at the On.Stage Black Box Theatre at Miami-Dade County Auditorium.
Mermaid Truth or Consequences is a live game show where, if you can’t tell the truth and biodiversity loss, you have to pay the consequences. Join your host Siren Jones for a chance to win exciting prizes by deciding who qualifies as “winners” and “losers” in the game of colonization and industrialization. That’s right folks, life is one big scratch ticket, so what have you got to lose? Take it from a mermaid, extinction is real, and it’s going to be a rollicking competition to the finish.
With such illustrious guests as Ponce de Leon (one of the forefathers of resource extraction industry), the bestselling author and Forecaster Dra. Dolores del Mundo, and a few endangered creatures, thrilling games about human and non-human survival take the stage. Why not have some fun while analyzing apocalyptic levels of environmental distress in this one-night-only Climakaze Miami event?
This work includes the participation of Carlos Miguel Caballero (dramaturgue, actor), Inez Barlatier (musician, actor) and Celia Ledón (costume/set design).
Climakaze Miami is a platform for performance and dialogue about climate change, environmental justice and sustainable futures en la Florida. Through arts and storytelling, we aim to build generative human networks in Florida and beyond which create awareness, action and greater empathy for other humans and other species.
