Opening night on December 28 will feature an abbreviated, 75-minute performance.

Miami’s leading multicultural, contemporary-dance ensemble, Peter London Global Dance Company (PLGDC) is set to premiere TOUCH and RAIN ON ME, works created during the height of the pandemic. PLGDC created a contemporary, Afro-Caribbean dance-fusion compilation showcasing the struggles many people faced throughout the pandemic.

The pandemic evicted us from our daily “normal.” We witnessed home evictions. We experienced eviction in our personal and intimate relationships. And activities involving touch became a threat to health and life. The pandemic brought separation from careers, income, businesses, creativity, worship and play, while looming over the community like an unbeatable giant, like a David and Goliath standoff. The great outdoors of beaches, parks, woodlands, etc., became more beloved and desirable for our health and well-being.

The world premieres of TOUCH and RAIN ON ME will have live accompaniment by the world-class Ballet and Dance Orchestra (BAD), with scores commissioned by PLGDC and composed by BAD founding artistic director Ezra Haugabrooks. The program includes world premieres by London, Brooke Logan, Gentry Isaiah George and Justin Rapaport.

These include Rapaport’s “Start Again” and “Passing By,” recipient of the Danish Dance Theater Award at the 14th Copenhagen International Choreography Competition and danced by Justin and Evan Rapaport.

The program also includes a world premiere by Jamaii Melvin set to music by award-winning international jazz star Nicole Henry, and a commissioned score by award-winning international jazz musician Ettienne Charles for London’s new work, “Kalinda Wash.”

Program:
THE STREETS:
During this time, it is estimated that there has been a significant increase in evictions from homes, exacerbating the crisis of the pandemic.

THE MIAMI DAVID: (Rafael del Vizo, Gentry Isaiah George, Aaron López, Leon Cobb):
The pandemic has forced people to self-quarantine and mandated lockdowns and the closing of public spaces. The pandemic stands like a Goliath against its victims. A seemingly insurmountable force and battle.

JOURNEY TO TEA: (Deja Darbonne and Aaron López)
The simple act of sharing tea or quality time with a loved one was suspended.

MY BROKEN HEART (Johnae Wright & Rafael del Vizo)
The inability to see loved ones, to touch or say goodbye has made their final transitions difficult and produced emotional trauma for many. Relationships broken, suspended, lost, sudden goodbyes forever.

KALINDA WASH (Kalinda; Jade McCartney. The river; Aaron López, Deja Darbonne, Gentry Isaiah George, Rafael del Vizo):
“Wash your hands.” That is if you have clean water or water to spare to wash your hands. Water became more essential in the pandemic. “Kalinda” is the Indian (Sanskrit) word for the sun. Mythology has it that the Kalindi waters flows from the mountains of the Kalinda to the ocean. In this dance, we acknowledge the divine waters and the sun that is the source of our existence and renewal.

Diversity. Scandal. Mystery. Truth. The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson, a historical little-known chapter in Southern California history, returns in dramatic form from October 1 – 31 to kick off Island City Stage’s 10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.

This gripping period drama which launched the theatre company’s award-winning run in 2012 recounts the true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap “social vagrants.” Thirty-one men were arrested, and the ensuing scandal led to an ordinance against “oral sodomy” in California. The play stars Clay Cartland as “Warren,” who originated the role in the Island City Stage production, and newcomer Alfonso Vieites as “Brown.”

Clay Cartland is a South Florida native and most recently performed in Shrek and Groundhog Day with Slow Burn Theatre at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Some of his favorite performances include The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Desperate Measures, Flashdance, 1776, Peter and the Starcatcher and First Date. Clay is also a proud member of Actors Equity and a recipient of two Carbonell and four Silver Palm Awards. Clay also works as a voice-over artist and teaches improv comedy.

Alfonso Vieites is thrilled to be making his Island City Stage debut. He was last seen at The Foundry in Party! He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre from Florida International University and has since continued his training with Sociedad Actoral Hispanoamericana in Doral. He’s also had the pleasure of appearing as a day player on two Telemundo shows.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season will also feature Armature by Andrew Kramer from January 27 – February 27, 2022; Suddenly, Last Summer by Tennessee Williams from March 17 – April 17, 2022; The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam
From June 9 – July 10, 2022 and One In Two by Donja R. Love from August 4 – September 4, 2022.

The complexities of American masculinity and boyhood come to the stage in a theatrical, vulnerable, and powerful world premiere dance evening presented by international Choreographer Randolph Ward.

Boys Will be Boys is an emotionally charged evening that dissects toxic masculinity and American ideologies on manhood. In a “call and response” military style cadence, performers enter the theater space chanting and marching in formation. “Man up”, “boys don’t cry”, and “take it like a man”, can be heard and are vocalized by dancers as B-Boys, Eagle and Christian battle each other in the street style of dance called “breaking”.

L. Frank Baum’s masterpiece comes to life on the Mainstage in this funny and clever musical originally produced by the award-winning Prince Street Players. After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of Oz, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz, who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister… but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.

Guaranteed to entertain both the smallest and largest of “munchkins,” audiences are encouraged to book their tickets early for The Wizard of Oz. Seating is very limited to implement Actors’ Playhouse’s COVID-19 safety plan that includes a new socially-distanced ticketing system.

El Koubek Center del Miami Dade College y MarGi Happenings, una organización basada en Miami que presenta artes escénicas sin fines de lucro, anunciaron hoy el lanzamiento del Teatro On Screen Fest, Festival Virtual de Teatro Hispano Miami 2020.

Este primer Festival Virtual se transmitirá por la plataforma digital Facebook LIVE en las páginas de @MarGiHappenings y @KoubekCenterMDC como parte de la celebración del mes de la Hispanidad en los Estados Unidos, los días 17, 18 y 19 de septiembre, 2020.

“Todos los géneros artísticos han sido afectados por la pandemia y han tenido que encontrar una alternativa virtual. La idea de un festival virtual de teatro surgió del deseo de explorar los desafíos y oportunidades que la pandemia presenta al teatro”, dijo Melissa Messulam, manager del Koubek Center. “Dada la respuesta que tuvimos a las lecturas dramatizadas, con Marilyn Romero y Gigi González, de MarGi Happenings, quienes cuentan con más de 30 años en el ámbito teatral de Miami, nos dimos cuenta de que aquí había una oportunidad para hacer más. Normalmente cuando pensamos en teatro, no pensamos en tecnología, y esto es algo que se presta a explorar nuevos horizontes”.

Para participar en el Festival, la obra debe tener algún vínculo representativo de la cultura hispana, dentro y fuera de los EE. UU., ya sea el autor, el tema, la adaptación, el idioma, los actores o el director y tendrá un mínimo de dos personajes (cada actor debe actuar por separado en su propio espacio) la duración debe ser de un mínimo de 30 minutos y un máximo de 40 minutos.

El Festival seleccionará 6 obras finalistas para su primera edición y los grupos interesados en participar deben mandar su inscripción y obra grabada antes del 24 de agosto del 2020. Las obras participantes se anunciarán el 7 de septiembre.

¿Extraña ir al teatro? ¡Nosotros también! ¿Prefiere obras contemporáneas o los clásicos? Pues ahora puede disfrutar de todas ellas, y lecturas de textos de grandes autores, desde su sofá favorito. En colaboración con MarGi Happenings, el Koubek Center presenta una lectura dramatizada, inspirada en Pareja Abierta el 21 de agosto a las 7 p.m. EST por FB Live: @KoubekCenterMDC. Todas estas lecturas son en español.

Pareja Abierta, una obra escrita por Dario Fo y Franca Rame, plantea en tono de sátira una crítica a la doble moral que existe alrededor del sexo y el matrimonio. Relata la vida de una pareja liberal con una relación abierta, donde el único que disfruta verdaderamente de esa “libertad” es el hombre. Es una obra llena de gags cómicos y situaciones delirantes, que ayudan a suavizar la trama, pero que muestra, a la vez, la realidad de un mundo que sigue siendo predominantemente machista.

Gracias al apoyo del Departamento de Asuntos Culturales del Condado de Miami-Dade y del Estado de la Florida. Este evento es accesible para todos y no es apto para menores. Si necesita solicitar alguna información, comuníquese con el Koubek Center: 305.237.7750.

Do you miss going to the theater? Us, too! Do you prefer contemporary works or classics? Well, now you can enjoy all of them, and readings of texts by great authors, from your favorite couch. In collaboration with MarGi Happenings, the Koubek Center presents a reading inspired by Pareja Abierta on August 21 at 7 p.m. EST on FB Live: @KoubekCenterMDC. All readings are in Spanish.

Pareja Abierta, by Dario Fo and Franca Rame, is a play that offers a satirical critique to the double standards on sex and marriage. It tells the story of a liberal couple with an open relationship, in which the only one truly enjoying the “freedom” is the man. Full of comical skits and delirious situations that ease addressing the subject matter, the play shows, at the same time, the reality of a world that predominantly remains male-dominated.

Thanks to the support of the Cultural Affairs Department of Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida. This event is accessible to everyone and is not recommended for a young audience. If you need to request any information, please contact the Koubek Center: 305.237.7750.

La obra es una reflexión sobre el amor, la pareja, los compromisos amorosos y la manera de reinventar las relaciones.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB!), a nonprofit volunteer-based arts organization committed to supporting, sustaining and enriching the arts in Broward County, will present its Spring Luncheon and Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 10, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The luncheon will feature special guest speaker Lourdes Lopez, artistic director of Miami City Ballet. A Q & A with the company’s dancers will follow the presentation.
Lourdes Lopez was recently named one of “The Most Influential People in Dance Today” by Dance magazine. She became artistic director of Miami City Ballet in 2012, bringing with her a nearly 40-year career in dance, television, teaching and arts management. Under Lopez’s direction, Miami City Ballet has become one of the country’s premier ballet companies.

As a soloist and principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Lopez danced for two legends of the art form, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. Lopez is a former WNBC-TV cultural arts reporter and senior faculty member and director of student placement, student evaluation and curriculum planning at New York’s Ballet Academy East. She served on the dance faculty of Barnard College and guest taught at numerous dance institutions and festivals in the United States. In 2002, she became the executive director of the George Balanchine Foundation, and subsequently co-founded The Cuban Artists Fund, which supports Cuban and Cuban-American artists in their endeavors. In 2007 she received an award from the American Immigration Law Foundation honoring Cuban Americans for their accomplishments and contributions to American society. Lopez also co-founded Morphoses with Christopher Wheeldon in 2007 — a New York-based dance company aiming to revitalize dance through innovative collaborations with important artists from the worlds of music, visual arts, design, film and fashion; and by inviting younger and broader audiences to engage in and actively experience dance.

In 2014 Lopez was elected to serve on the Ford Foundation’s board of trustees, marking the first time an artist was elected to serve on its board and in 2011, she received the prestigious Jerome Robbins Award for her years in dance. She has served as a dance panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts.

An Unforgettable Evening of NON-STOP LAUGHS for Single, Divorced, or Devoted Couples! (See this show before it heads to OFF-BROADWAY)
“A Funny show about Marriage & Relationships. Go see it!” (Ray Romano – Everybody Loves Raymond)
Eternal Bachelor Peter Fogel has major commitment issues as the love of his life has just broken up with him on Valentine’s Day! Sensing his own mortality he decides to revisit the scene of all his romantic disasters with a Special Visitor who mentors him on the true meaning of commitment.

And with that decision, Fogel brings you his autographical tale of a comedian’s Quixote quest to finding and surrendering to the one woman who can transform his life: Fogel’s hysterical and critically acclaimed multi-media solo show, ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART…YOU FIRST! is Directed by Academy Award Nominee and Three-Time Emmy Award Winner CHAZZ PALMINTERI (A Bronx Tale, The Usual Suspects, Bullets Over Broadway)

Fogel laments to his audience: “The longest relationship I’ve ever had in my entire life… is with Alexa’s Amazon!”

Young or old, divorced or married…if you’ve ever been single (and that’s everyone) and want to experience (again) the feeling of finding that special person to spend the rest of your life with, then you’ll want to fasten your seat belt for 75 minutes of non-stop laughs with Peter Fogel’s ‘TIL DEATH DO US PART…YOU FIRST!

Miami Art Zine says “… A hilarious cross between “Men Are From Mars/Women Are From Venus and “Defending the Caveman!”

The NY Post says… “the single’s man, single man… who tells such hilarious stories about being single in the city… one wants to go out and find him a suitable mate!”

The Palm Beach Arts Post… “Fogel’s ingratiating delivery and inclusive approach to the subject, plus some genuinely funny observations, make ’Til Death an entertaining evening out!”

“A hysterical look at the complexity of relationships, love, & marriage – proving you can find your soulmate at any age.” Dr. Diana Kirchner, Best Selling Author of “Love in 90 Days” CBS Morning Show, Good Morning America

Future My Love (2013), 97 minutes, Directed by Maja Borg
Future My Love is a unique love story challenging our collective and personal utopias in search of freedom. At the brink of losing the idealistic love of her life, filmmaker Maja Borg takes us on a poetic road trip through the financial collapse, exploring a radically different economic and social model proposed by 95-year-old futurist Jacque Fresco. How much freedom are we prepared to give to the ones we love? And how much responsibility are we ready to take for our society? Carefully weaving a texture of archival footage, black-and-white Super 8 film, and color HD, Borg poignantly depicts the universal struggle between our heads and hearts in times of big change.

Cirque du Soleil is coming to Miami with the revival of Alegría, its most iconic production. From December 20, 2019 – January 26, 2020, audiences are invited under the Big Top next to Hard Rock Stadium to fall in love with timeless Alegría; a true Cirque du Soleil classic reinterpreted through today’s creative lens.

A production destined to change the history of the company, Cirque du Soleil first presented Alegría in April 1994, launching an emblematic show that was to win over more than 14 million spectators in 255 cities in 19 years of touring through the end of 2013. The show’s theme song, which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1995 and continues to be a fan favorite, is the most listened-to Cirque du Soleil song on YouTube.

In light of its 25th anniversary, Cirque du Soleil is revisiting its legendary Alegría through today’s lens—including new costumes and set design, a renewed acrobatic vocabulary, and new musical arrangements —to ensure it is as inspiring now as it was at the time of its creation in 1994. With its signature songs, stunning acrobatics, memorable characters and enchanting artistry that have helped define the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic, Alegría is the reincarnation of a classic, reinterpreted for the age, and rekindled to inspire fans—old and new alike.

More about Alegría
Beloved by fans around the world, Alegría (‘joy’ in Spanish) is returning to the Big Top once more to share its timeless story of resilience and hope. The classic power struggle of old-meets-new has been reinterpreted through today’s lens. Carried by an intangible wind of change, an emerging movement strives to shake the established order, instilling hope and renewal to bring light and harmony to their kingdom in decay. With its joyful spirit, Alegría is a vital, energizing force driven by a thirst for a brighter world.

The documentary feature Nueva Venecia portrays the inhabitants of a small village in the Santa Marta marsh in Colombia, who live on the water and make a living by fishing. Their lives changed drastically on November 22, 2000, when a paramilitary group slaughtered 37 people and forced the other villagers to move out. In spite of the horror and the possibility of further acts of violence, the community eventually returned, choosing to face the hazards of new assaults rather than quit their way of life. Things did change, however, as fishing-boat memorials and ceremonies to honor the dead have become familiar, as have constant pleas to the authorities for justice. Something else keeps people together: soccer, played again on the field built on stilts, long hidden under water. Sport provides the only hope for a way out for many of the local youngsters, who dream of both social and economic improvement, and of being discovered by some scout or club agent to become Colombian soccer stars.

Zins-Browne’s The Chaos Opera draws upon Glissant’s defense of chaos as a mechanism for embracing difference. The performance brings together voices from diverse musical traditions—R&B, bolero, death metal, rap, and opera—to explore how different voices might cohabitate in the same space without capitulating, assimilating, or forcing cohesion. Rather than the idealized harmonies of “fusion” music, it asks how different voices can maintain their opacity in relation to each other, and how such a cacophony might allow new forms, voices, and hybrid languages to emerge. The Chaos Opera will be performed by Dyna Edyne, Michale Grafals, Celeste Landeros, Niuvis Martin, and Nad Pitt.

Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for “Best Play,” all elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in John Patrick Shanley’s provocative play Doubt, A Parable, a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty. Doubt, A Parable is blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, and a powerful drama that represents the eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences.

Cirque du Soleil returns to Sunrise with Corteo, their latest and most enchanting arena production 7/24/19 – 8/4/19

Sunrise, Florida 33323

Cost: $59.00 – $190.00

Corteo, the latest and most enchanting Cirque du Soleil’s arena production is now touring in North America. The show will visit Sunrise at the BB&T Center Arena from July 24 to August 4, 2019 for a limited run of sixteen performances. This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then, the show has been a great success and has amazed 8 million people in 19 countries on four continents.

Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.

The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by
quietly caring angels. Juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music turns lyrical and playful carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.

The concept and disposition of the stage bring the audience in a theatrical atmosphere like never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The set curtains, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the central curtains, which were hand painted, give a grandiose feel to the stage. This sets the tone for the poetry of Corteo.

The cast of Corteo includes 52 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.

Website
Cost: $10

NAMI Miami-Dade County expects to attract thousands of people and seat close to 800 people at the 4th Annual Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival at the University of Miami’s Donna E. Shalala Center on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. This year’s festival will showcase six short films. The narratives behind these films will share a range of life experiences meant to inspire, heal, and empower people. Following each short film, an individual with a lived experience of a mental health challenge will speak on the films’ topic for a few minutes providing further insight about the message behind each film.

This year’s lineup is comprised of films from a variety of talented directors, including a member of the International Cinematographers Guild, a multi-award-winning actor and Navy Veteran, and an award-winning filmmaker. The six films were chosen out of almost 200 submissions based on their compelling storytelling and way of educating and dispelling the myth behind mental illness. Submitted films were judged by film makers, clinicians, high school and college students, individuals with mental illness and their family members.

The 2019 lineup includes Terms of Us by director, writer, producer Roberto Sanchez, a Cuban born, Miami raised Navy Veteran who has a recurring role on Queen of the South. Additionally, Roberto will be speaking at the festival; Baby Steps from Los Angeles director, Eric Dyson; Misdirection by Carly Usdin, a University of Central Florida graduate with Miami ties, now an award-winning filmmaker based in Los Angeles; Reverie by Nick Markham; Saving Billy by Vickie Adams; and UkeLayla, directed and produced by a team of recent Miamians and graduates from the University of Central Florida.

“Films are a compelling storytelling form that connects with our deepest sensibilities, and research suggests that film festivals have a positive impact on stigma and recovery in mental illness. That’s why for the fourth consecutive year, NAMI Miami-Dade is showcasing a curated list of short films inspired by the lives of those who have been affected by mental illness,” says Kathryn Coppola, Executive Director at NAMI Miami. “Together, we can spark the awareness that makes the difference in our society.” NAMI Miami’s goal is to “end the silence” and to start the conversation about mental health proving that recovery is possible.

Cannibal Desire responds to the powerful pulsions, longings and fantasies of a violence from another time. In this project, the dimension of power defines an ambition which aims at multiplying new sensations and experiences, free of any hierarchy and form of control. The impetus of cannibal desire thus becomes, for the Caribbean artists, a state of consciousness, a way to consider the world.

Through selected paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and videos, the curators Jean-Marc Hunt and Marie Vickles explore a poetic state of transe, similar to an unlimited fantasy with all sorts of possibilities. The exhibition Cannibal Desire was first shown in 2018 at the Fondation Clément in Martinique, focusing on emerging artists from Guadeloupe. Now travelling to Miami, the exhibition is expanding to artists from Martinique, French Guiana, Haiti, Mexico and Venezuela.
