Friday, June 14 at 8:30 pm
Colony Theatre
1040 Lincoln Road
Miami Beach.
Direct from Cuba: El Ciervo Encantado presents “Cubalandia” a hilariously profound interactive performance by Cuba’s outrageously daring and controversial Lesbian Feminist theater collective addressing the social and political conditions of present-day Cuba. Presented in Spanish with English supertitles.  This performance will be immediately followed by:
From New York: the inimitable and wildly flamboyant Taylor Mac presents his latest work “The 20th Century Show,” an incredible visual feast and concert consisting of one song from each decade of the 20th Century (plus two encores) presented as “a performance ritual to help the audience let go of the 20th century and move into the 21st.”
 
“Cubalandia” by El Ciervo Encantando and “Post-Plástica Miami 2013” by Carmelita Tropicana and Ela Troyano
Saturday, June 15 at 8:30 pm
Colony Theatre
1040 Lincoln Road
Miami Beach.
Direct from Cuba: El Ciervo Encantado presents “Cubalandia” a hilariously profound interactive performance by Cuba’s outrageously daring and controversial Lesbian Feminist theater collective addressing the social and political conditions of present-day Cuba. Presented in Spanish with English supertitles. This performance will be immediately followed by:
From New York: the hilarious Cuban-American diva of queer comedy Carmelita Tropicana presents “Post Plastica Miami 2013” in collaboration with New York based filmmaker Ela Troyano.  Part live performance, part video installation, “Post Plastica Miami 2013” offers a glimpse into a future in which celebrity culture has pitched a battle between the primacy of virtual and artistic lives; in which revolutionaries keep bees in a secret underground; and in which a half-woman, half-bear scientist has gained the upper hand…
 
“Verde Verde” a film by Enrique Pineda Barnet.
Sunday, June 16th at 4:30 pm
Miami Beach Cinematheque
1130 Washington Ave

The riveting, highly controversial Cuban film “Verde Verde,” directed by Enrique Pineda Barnet explores issues of gay male identity and homophobia in contemporary Cuba. Presented in Spanish with English subtitles.  Miami-based actor Carlos Miguel Caballero, one of the protagonists, will be in attendance to introduce the film.
 
Well-Strung in Concert
Sunday, June 16th at 8:00 pm
Colony Theatre
