Miami already has a homegrown, exciting arts scene that will only continue to flourish and grow through increased opportunities for professional artists to present their performance work. Fundarte’s Miami On Stage is a curated multi-disciplinary performing arts series featuring work by South Florida artists.
Now in its second year, Miami On Stage has literally taken its name to another level through an innovative collaboration with the Miami-Dade County Auditorium and its new On.Stage Black.Box, and again at The Byron-Carlyle Theater in Miami Beach. The series comprises four to five performances, featuring work from South Florida musicians, actors, playwrights, dancers, poets, filmmakers and visual artists. It will also include a number of complementary events, such as panel discussions, open rehearsals and post-show talkbacks.
The Miami On Stage series already started this March with a Latin Jazz Night Jam featuring Yorgis Goiricelaya, Hilario Bell and other musicians in an “unplugged” concert. The series continues on April 22nd with the presentation of Jesus Hidalgo and The Pachamama Project, showcasing their Sistema Dos (System Two), a project that integrates a consciousness of the environment with music in a multi-media project.
On May 6, Miami On Stage will host Asesinos Por Una Noche (Assassins for the night), a physical theater performance piece and video installation based on the play of the Cuban playwright José Triana, directed by choreographer Alexey Taran.
And to close the series on June 24th, comes the theatrical performance If you’re going to pull a knife, USAlo, a collaboration between Carlos Caballero and Elizabeth Doud that employs the texts of Samuel Beckett to talk about the petroleum industry, unemployment and mermaids.
