This is the smartest, hottest, and most honest storytelling event in South Florida: eight people, eight stories, eight minutes each. The stories are hilarious, heartbreaking, poignant, embarrassing, inspiring, and all true! The stories are edited and rehearsed, but you never really know what you’re going to get until you get it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe. And you are guaranteed to feel inspired to tell your own story. Brought to you by Miami Book Fair.

In the Lobby Lounge . . . Words 6/17/15

In the Lobby Lounge . . . WORDS!
wordsWednesday, June 17th – 6:30pm
Olympia Theater at Gusman Center
174 E. Flagler Street
Miami FL 33131

This month’s theme is ArT, which means we will be reading WORDS! about aRT . . .

. . . and we’ve got some very special words indeed!

The Blazing World, by Siri Hustvedt. Breaking down the book through fiction reading, Olympia actors will bring to life the characters of Hustvedt’s latest novel, the provocative story of artist Harriet “Harry” Burden who, after years of watching her work ignored or dismissed by critics, conducts an experiment she calls Maskings. She presents her own art behind three male masks, concealing her female identity.

Wednesday, June 17th will be our first evening focused solely on fiction, breaking down a single book, and The Blazing World, with its fractured structure and diverging perspectives, really lends itself to this approach. Raquel Roque from Books & Books in Coral Gables will be on hand with copies of the novel for sale.

Doors open at 6:00 pm and the reading starts at 6:30 pm. Cocktails available at the bar. Guided tour of the historic Olympia Theater during intermission.

This is a FREE event, open to the public.

In The Lobby Lounge . . .”WORDS! is our second foray into the wonderful world of Wednesdays in Downtown Miami,” says Olympia Theater Executive Director Robert Geitner, “bringing theatre and prose back to the Olympia on a monthly basis.” Future words-oriented evenings will include directed play readings, improv, skits & spontaneous theater, short stories, readings of excerpts from longer works of fiction, and personal monologues “in their own words.” By October 2015, the event will be scheduled the first Wednesday of every month.

Photographs of Cirque du Soleil Amaluna at Sun Life Stadium on 12/11/14

Cirque du Soleil Amaluna at Sun Life Stadium on Thursday, December 11, 2014.

“Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon.

Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next.

In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.”
