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.”

New Show Dates Added, Limited Tickets Available From As Low As $35

Amaluna by Cirque du Soleil will open to a packed house in Miami on Thursday December 11 at Sun Life Stadium. The cast and crew of Amaluna are finishing up shows in Atlanta, GA this week and are preparing to travel to Miami with their 2,000 tonnes of equipment, in the convoy of 65 trucks.

To celebrate the Premiere in Miami and due to an overwhelming demand, additional show dates have been added with some tickets starting as low as $35. Tickets can be purchased by visiting cirquedusoleil.com/amalu… or by calling 1-877-9 CIRQUE. Amaluna’s show dates have now been extended to run in Miami until January 25 2015.

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 honors 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.

Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon”; a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where this magical story unfolds.

Some 30 years ago, Cirque du Soleil was but a dream. It was the dream of a small community of travelling performers who would do anything to share their love of the stage, of circus and of the world. The family has grown since then and now includes thousands of dreamers–creators, artists, technicians and workers who toil in the shadows. The dream has become a symbol of Québec pride, an international entertainment company that has brought 35 large-scale shows to life–20 of which are still in operation. The company, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in June 2014, has brought wonder and delight to close to 150 million spectators in more than 300 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has close to 4,000 employees, including 1,300 performing artists from close to 50 different countries.

Amaluna is proud to be presented by Visa Signature, the official presenting sponsor of Cirque du Soleil, in association with Citi Cards. We also gratefully acknowledge our official sponsors for Amaluna, DHL and Xerox.

The New York Times urges; “The display of female strength is a lovely thing”. New York Post boasts; “gorgeous visuals and dazzling circus acts”, and San Francisco Chronicle described Amaluna as; “sumptuously designed and invigoratingly female-powered”.

AMALUNA

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 honors 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 washes ashore the island, triggering an epic and 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 and the couple must face numerous demanding trials before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.

Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon”; a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where this magical story unfolds.

A TRIBUTE TO THE WORK AND VOICE OF WOMEN

For the first time in Cirque du Soleil’s history, Amaluna features a cast that comprises 70% women, with a 100% all-female band. “Amaluna is a tribute to the work and voice of women”, explains Director of Creation Fernand Rainville. “The show is a reflection on balance from a women’s perspective”, he adds. Writer and Director Diane Paulus, winner of a 2013 Tony Award (Pippin) and recently named as one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2014, says; “I didn’t want to build a ‘women’s agenda’ show. I wanted to create a show with women at the center of it, something that had a hidden story that featured women as the heroines.” Paulus drew from a series of classical influences when creating the concept of the show, including tales from Greek and Norse mythology, Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

Some 30 years ago, Cirque du Soleil was but a dream. It was the dream of a small community of travelling performers who would do anything to share their love of the stage, of circus and the of the world. The family has since grown and now includes thousands of dreamers – creators, artists, technicians and workers who toil in the shadows. The dream has become a symbol of Quebec pride, an international entertainment company that has brought 35 large-scale shows to life – 20 of which are still in operation. The company, which celebrated it’s 30th anniversary in June 2014, has brought wonder and delight to close to 150 million spectators in more than 300 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has close to 4,000 employees worldwide, including 1,300 performers from more than 50 different countries.

For Immediate Release

Hidden Colors 3: South Florida Screening | Miami Gardens

June 26, 2014- “Hidden Colors” — a documentary series about the cultural history of African Americans, identity and race in America, will be releasing the highly anticipated third installment, “The Rules Of Racism.” The film will focus on the topic of race, racism, and history within the United States. The project features various speakers from scholars such as Dick Gregory and Phil Valentine, to entertainment vets like Nas, KRS-ONE, David Banner and Paul Mooney.

The series’ director and producer Tariq “Elite” Nasheed — a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and radio host — is widely known for his social commentary. In the trailer, he briefly alludes to a certain motivation in approaching the topic of racism, “there’s never been a real dialogue in America about race because every time we talk about race the conversation then turns into ‘what’s wrong with black people.'” This documentary destroys the myths and lies about melinated people of African descent. For those who are seeking the truth about black history and the effects of systemic racism in this country, Hidden Colors 3 and the Hidden Colors series is a must watch. This documentary pertains to our youth, education, economics, world history amongst other topics from a melinated perspective. If the realization and understanding that racism in America still occurs till today, self adjustment can go into effect.

Hidden Colors 3: The Rules of Racism will be released June 26, 2014 and will be premiered in select theaters and locations around the country. South Florida patrons will have the opportunity to view this informative documentary FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY on the release date at Betty T. Ferguson Complex in Miami Gardens, 3000 NW 199th St, Miami Gardens, FL 33056.

If you’re allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you’d probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k.

But if you’re itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash, Color Me Rad Miami is the run for you.

By intelligent design or evolution, man was meant to run for one thing and one thing only: to stay alive. Pamplona was the first real race organized for what running should be: running from stuff that’s going to kill, gore, or maim you.

Luckily, we’ve evolved to where we only hunt for attractive potential mates, we only gather for extreme couponing, and we only run to benefit charities and our cardiovascular system.

So quit lollygagging and join us for the race that’s been ruining all other 5Ks since 2012 at Color Me Rad Miami .

Free Thanksgiving-themed Concerts for Kids 11/17/12

Free Thanksgiving-themed Concerts for Kids

Orchestra Miami is pleased to continue its series of Free Family Concerts designed to introduce young children to classical music. Tough Turkey in the Big City: A Thanksgiving Odyssey, by Bruce Adolphe and Louise Gikow, will be a treat for the whole family! Perfect for the attention spans of our young audience, this fun and engaging program will last approximately 45 minutes.

What happens when a turkey from the sticks meets a Park Avenue pigeon? With the feel of an old-time radio story, Tough Turkey in the Big City follows the comic blunders of Tom Turkey, who leaves the farm to try his luck in the big city. The story, related to the audience by a narrator, illustrates a close call with a menacing chef, a tussle at the “Turkey Club”, a brief romance with a pigeon, and a happy mix up at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s a big-hearted story of a plucky bird on an unexpected journey. Tom is portrayed by the bass trombone and his barnyard friends by the violin and clarinet. The music of the farm is a swinging barnyard counterpoint, while the music of the city recalls the smoky jazz of film noire. There’s also some fun march music at the parade, and hot Latin rhythms at the Turkey Club.

• Friday, November 16- 7:00 PM at the Miami Shores Presbyterian Church, 602 NE 96 Street, Miami Shores, FL 33138
• Saturday, November 17- 1:30 PM at the North Dade Regional Library, 2455 NW 183 Street, Miami, FL 33056

Performances are sponsored in part by the Miami-Dade Public Library System. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, children are asked to bring canned goods, to be donated to local food banks.

Celebrating its Sixth Anniversary, Orchestra Miami’s mission is to bring world-class quality symphonic music to all South Floridians. For more information, please go to our website at www.OrchestraMiami.org or call (305) 274-2103.
