KURT is a multidisciplinary exhibition and study of the late Kurt Cobain. The evening opens with the world premier of a short film by artist Adarsha Benjamin titled KURT – an abstract portrayal of the personality and many masks of the myth that surrounded the late Kurt Cobain featuring various actors and their take on this cultural icon.
Famed choreographer and L.A. dance provocateur Ryan Heffington stages a 15-minute “over-sensory live version” inspired by the famous Nirvana music video, “Smells like Teen Spirit” to original music by Guy Blakeslee, front man of the LA indie-band The Entrance.
The evening continues with a performance by Thurston Moore, from the legendary band Sonic Youth, whose music was a huge influence on Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
KURT is presented by the Friends of Gusman-Red Curtain Series, Olympia Theater, and Onward Forward, with support from the Knight Foundation, Miami Downtown Development Authority and Friends of Gusman.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
