Nina Kauder will be hosting the interactive Workshop Your Lunch! raw food demonstration at 12 pm. It’s a family friendly day celebrating people, ecology, connectivity and sustainability!

Colony1 is Miami’s most comprehensive sustainable living education hub and will be hosting these festivals every third Saturday of the month to bring the citizens of Miami and South Florida together in the name of all things sustainability. Colony1 is 100% volunteer driven, and the interactive workshops are presented by people who want to share their knowledge and increase the presence of a socially responsible, regenerative, and holistic lifestyle.

Most importantly, this is a platform for community to connect with each other, and help Miami grow into the nexus of conscious, socially responsible living it wants to be.

The parent non-profit organization, Art of Cultural Evolution, is developing the Colony1 site in the heart of Wynwood thanks to a 50-year land grant from Miami-Dade County.

Every city has its book written in a million different volumes, each with its own author. New York tells stories of a concrete jungle, crawling with those who strive to one day take a chunk of the apple and feast on it for the rest of eternity. Los Angeles with its tales of lost angels flocking from all over the world is heaven for some, purgatory or even hell for others. But what about Miami? What of its book? Time and time again the city has been glamorized by South Beach and its pretty colors. A city supposedly filled with flamingos and peacocks ignores the pigeons and mocking birds that truly call it home. Under the Black Sun Through the Neon Trees will give a voice to a group of native sons telling Miami’s story through their own work. Each artist, different from the next, will own a little piece of this epic volume by adding a chapter to the Magic City.
WYN 317 Gallery is pleased to present Under the Black Sun Through the Neon Trees, a group exhibition curated by Ivan Roque featuring works by Ernesto Maranje, James Livingston, James Brutus, Danny Ferrer and Ivan Roque.

“My Rise 2 Fame” is the autobiography and explicit untold story of Christopher “Fresh Kid Ice” Wong Won, the historic co-founder of hip hop’s most infamous group “THE 2 LIVE CREW.” Chris is a first amendment freedom fighter, Supreme Court Victor, independent music pioneer, and hip hop icon. This book features his all true stories of sex, more sex, and the music business, making gold and platinum albums, and a legendary lawsuit from Florida’s governor, who tried to ban the group and take away their first amendment right to free speech. It’s a historic ride through one of the world’s favorite cult genres: “Miami Bass,” and a thrilling memoir that also features the Top 10 Strip Club Cities in America, what happens at a freakshow, and how to pull a caper. The past, present, and future collide in dramatic fashion as the rollercoaster highs and lows of a life on the road bestow their pleasures and take their tolls. Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and raised in Brooklyn, Christopher Wong Won’s journey through life as a Chinese Afro-Caribbean immigrants reflects the hopes and dreams of America today. From overcoming the adversity of a life altering injury, introducing Southern hip hop to the world, bringing sex and rap together in songs that are still played and imitated today, selling platinum, shocking and offending, and then watching an empire come crashing down around him in a hail of lawsuits through graft, mismanagement, greed, and thievery, Fresh Kid Ice has seen it all. Learn about the man and the group, whose music is featured in the movies Boyz N The Hood, Friday, Twins, New Jack City, Project X, and the videogame Grand Theft Auto in a deeply graphic book that reveals never before told stories that will leave you breathless and amazed. In “MY RISE 2 FAME” you will discover that Fresh Kid Ice and the crew inspired legendary Rap acts such as NWA, Cash Money Records, and so many more.

CASTING 101 LAB

Whether you’re making a blockbuster hit or a nano-budget indie flick, all filmmakers know that matching an actor to the script is crucial to the success of a film. Yes, some directors choose to do it themselves, but the experience and expertise of a casting director is invaluable to the pre-production process. Actors and filmmakers alike are able to maximize creativity and success if a casting director puts the two together correctly.

From how to get the best out of your casting director to finding the right talent agent who will book you in Miami, LA and New York, this is an incredibly valuable workshop that will demystify the process from the complementing perspectives of a group of successful professionals: actor Jordi Vilasuso, casting director/manager Manny Arca, and casting directors Ed Arena and George Ortiz.

If you are an actor in South Florida planning to attend, please bring your headshot and your reel, we are creating an actor archive that we would like to share with our members and the casting directors in attendance.
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

ACTORS
– how to land a contract with an agent
– how to pick the agent that’s right for you
– you have an audition- now what?

FILMMAKERS
– what to look for in a casting director
– how to build relationships with the right casting agents/directors
– how to plan a successful audition process

The event is set to celebrate the 80th birthday of Terry Riley, one of the most iconic American composers. Sarah explains: “His music is far more complex and adventurous than people give him credit for, and he has written so much terrific music since In C,” his most infamous opus. Newly commissioned works of four emerging composers (Sam Adams, Danny Clay, Christine Southworth and Dylan Mattingly) are featured together with pieces by Pauline Oliveros, Evan Ziporyn and Juraj Kojs.

Sarah talks about the concert: “What I love about this program is that each composer reflects on Terry Riley’s music but none of the pieces sound like him.  Using a tiny speaker hidden in the piano, Sam Adams creates resonances with sine waves in duet with the pianist.  Evan Ziporyn’s You Are Getting Sleepy gets some of its inspiration from Evan’s work with Balinese gamelan and Ghanaian drumming.  Christine Southworth’s Sparkita and Her Kittens deconstructs a Bollywood soundtrack.  25-year-old Danny Clay’s three-movement Circle Songs shimmers with Terry Riley’s sunny positive California energy, but the resemblances stop there. Pauline Oliveros’ A Trilling Piece for Terry is a structured improvisation, which I have been playing as a duet with whoever is turning pages for that particular concert.  Pauline has known Terry since the 60s when they co-founded the San Francisco Tape Music Center, so it’s particularly meaningful to have a piece by her.”

The concert features a world premiere: Kojs’ In the Mist, a piece also commissioned by Sarah Cahill. The work combines traditional playing and unconventional extended techniques, including the reformulation of pianist’s hands and feet as percussion instruments.

Cookie’s Kid is a solo dance theater work that explores what is inherited muscle memory. Herrera interprets her experience growing up with a-tough-as nails Bronx mother and a counter-revolutionary Cuban refugee father, by delving deeply into ecstatic movement to discover what information her body holds about her cultural history. Exploring iconic cultural references ranging from La Lupe, to Chuck Norris, to Walter Mercado as well as utilizing Afro-Cuban dance and Trance Dance as the framework for movement, Rosie investigates how these seemingly unrelated idols are connected by themes of rebellion, strength, and vulnerability.

For this project aptly titled Poem: Videos, Wright collaborates with five artists selected for their dual interests in bridging the divide between disciplines of sculpture, photography, painting, performance, and new forms of film making with the written word.

The Screening Room is a new-media exhibition and project space located in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Video artist, filmmaker and Miami native Rhonda Mitrani, recognized a need in the community for a multi-disciplinary space dedicated to film and video programs, lectures and gatherings.

This installation is running now through August 1, 2015.
