Spoken Soul Festival 2019 main event SWAN Spoken Soul Showcase Vol 12 Celebrates Women Artists in Honor of SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now)
Spoken Soul Festival is celebrating an equally simple and complicated concept: the word. SSF 12’s theme, #WordIsBond, explores how in the digital age words have no boundaries and comments on how because of this, words are more powerful than ever before in our history. The open admission showcase will experience the rich cultural diaspora that they have come to expect from the SSF’s signature event: women dancers, poets, visual artists, vocalists, and a female DJ, all representing different cultures and unique voices. This year’s theme, #WordIsBond, will take center stage, weaving in, out and in between dancers’ limbs, peeking out from visual works, and swirling through the air in sync with live musical notes.

Yué is the name of all the women who ever invest and occupy with their body a piece of public space: in this case, PAMM’s waterfront. Myriam Soulanges and Anne Meyer found the bodies and gestures of Yué thanks to stories of women they met during residencies in French Guiana and Guadeloupe. Those stories are now shared with other women from the Caribbean and from Miami. Myriam Soulanges and Anne Meyer show a work of feminine/artistic engagement in a tormented context of social movements and climate change. Hurricanes Irma and Maria have also influenced Yué#sorority, and later on visual artist Guy Gabon joined the project. Forced migrations increase women’s vulnerability and exacerbates inequalities. They need our attention today. The choreographic thread of Yué#Sorority is reconstructed in Miami with volunteer performers who have been meeting up for two weeks in Little Haiti Cultural Center in Little Haiti and the Koubek Center in Little Havana during dance and sewing workshops with the artists.

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and ArtCenter/South Florida are pleased to co-present the first-ever Latinx Art Sessions, a two-day discussion program—connecting artists, industry leaders, and the greater Miami art scene—that will explore the impact that Latinx art is having on the national landscape and how continued research and academic focus can drive even greater impact.

Sessions will include: a presentation on the significance of Cuban artist Felix-González-Torres, an openly gay man who had a major influence on the politicization of art during the 1980s AIDS crisis; a discussion on the ways U.S. Latinx artists are disrupting racial binaries in America; and a panel exploring what the national Latinx art movement means to Miami where over 60% of the population is Hispanic.

The Latinx Art Sessions are an extension of PAMM’s new Latin American and Latinx Art Fund, a new affiliate group created to support exhibitions and programming at PAMM for Latin American and Latinx artists. This program is organized by María Elena Ortiz, Associate Curator, PAMM, Naiomy Guerrero, DAMLI Curatorial Fellow, PAMM, and Natalia Zuluaga, Director, [NAME] Publications.

Following the screening, join the filmmaker and producer for a conversation moderated by Sweat Records’ Lolo Reskin and a Q&A with the audience.

In “Kate Nash: Underestimate the Girl,” a platinum-selling pop dissident turns her back on the music business and learns how to survive as a punk renegade, TV wrestling queen, and DIY leader of an all-girl band. This high-energy, female-centered rock odyssey reveals the treacherous line that today’s artists must walk to survive while making art on their own terms in the modern digital economy.

Enjoy happy hour on the terrace with an all-vinyl DJ set​​ by Lagrimas de Oro before the conversation and film. ​

An Age-Old Fairytale Awakens with New Perspective at World Premiere in South Florida During Miami Art Week; Then Travels to New York’s Upper West Side Beacon Theatre

The world premiere of Sleeping Beauty Dreams, a contemporary art exploration of the age-old fable brought to life by Magic Reality Group, will debut at the Adrienne Arsht Center during Miami Art Week. The EDM-influenced performance explores one of the most iconic stories ever told, Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty,” and will showcase the first-ever fusion of live contemporary ballet dance with 3D digital avatars projected on-stage in real-time. The Miami showings of this story never told before takes place at the Ziff Ballet Opera House at Adrienne Arsht Center. The performance then visits New York City the following weekend at the Beacon Theatre.

The legend of Sleeping Beauty has been retold by masters since the 14th century, but no one has explored what the princess was dreaming while she slept for 100 years. Global prima ballerina, Diana Vishneva, performing as Princess Aurora and Marcelo Gomes, as Prince Peter are brought together in a fusion of dance, music, art, and revolutionary 3D digital technology never seen on stage before. Artists joining Vishneva and Gomes include Tobias Gremmler and Bart Hess, with music by famed EDM pioneers, NOISIA, a Dutch trio whose music is featured on Hollywood blockbusters and works with some of the world’s biggest artists including Skrillex and deadmau5.
