An accumulation of new works fashioned under the strain of metamorphosis
Now thru January 19th. Shows Thursday to Sunday at 8:00 p.m.
After the contagious success of Blow Me by Jessica Farr at their new home at the Miami Theater Center, Mad Cat Theatre Company is pleased to present MIXTAPE 2: UMMAGUMMA FORZA ZUMA! a collection of new works by various local artists and familiar faces. In 2008, Mad Cat released its first MIXTAPE featuring a mix of new plays and films steeped in nostalgia. Now, six years later, Mad Cat is back with a new mix of plays and films, MIXTAPE 2: UMMAGUMMA FORZA ZUMA!, a theatrical stew that is very much embedded in the present.
MIXTAPE 2: UMMAGUMMA FORZA ZUMA! is about having the right mixture of mojo needed to make it through a metamorphosis. This collection of new works features pieces by Jessica Farr, Elena Maria Garcia, Theo Reyna, Deborah L. Sherman, Andres Rey Solorzano, Paul Tei, and Kristina Wong as well as new films by Paul Tei, Molly Gandour, George Schiavone and Matt Corey, Karelle Levy and Michael Landsberg, and Wet Sock Ensemble (Erik Fabregat, Ralph de la Portilla and Ted Chambers), with original music by Darin Gray of the band On Fillmore.
The ensemble features Carey Brianna Hart and Mad Cat company members: Troy Davidson, Jessica Farr, Joe Kimble, Noah Levine and Erin Joy Schmidt with Theo Reyna as Syd. The production and design team for MIXTAPE 2 includes the sound design and original music of Matt Corey (company member), lighting design by Melissa Santiago Keenan (company member), costume design by Karelle Levy, guest direction by Leland Patton, Jessica Farr and Theo Reyna, and set design and direction by Mad Cat’s founder Paul Tei.
This production is made possible by the Miami Theater Center, Delaplaine Champagne, WLRN and with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners.
