Attendees also learn more about the music and each artist’s journey with music.

Since 1985, the Community Arts Program (CAP) Summer Concert Series has been attended by more than 70,000 concertgoers. It is a time-honored tradition that continued with virtual broadcasts to the world throughout the pandemic summers of 2020 and 2021, and gathered an average of 7,500 views each summer. This developed an extended audience that CAP is excited to welcome on-ground again in the summer of 2023!

Throughout the school year, the Community Arts Program (CAP) also provides after-school music education with the CAP Conservatory for the Arts and its Miami Jazz Institute. These reach children and youth from over 53 Miami-Dade County Schools, no matter what students’ circumstance or ability.

The Brothers Size 6/22/23, 6/23/23, 6/24/23, 6/25/23

The Brothers Size
Thursday, 06/22/2023-06/25/2023, 07:00 pm-
Island City Stage
2304 N. Dixie Highway, Wilton Manors,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33305
Cost: $20

The next addition to our “Dans Le Avant Garde” series. In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and aimless. Elega, Oshoosi’s old prison-mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that beings in ritual and evolves into a touch and tender drama of what it means to brother and be brothered. Flights of poetry, music, dance, and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.
Following the matinee performance on June 24, we will have a talkback entitled “Bein’ a Brutha”, focusing on masculinity and brotherhood in the Black Male community. In addition, we will delve into the traditional emotional tendencies in male culture, and explore concepts of love, weakness, the black male body, and effeminacy. Featuring “Universal Man” Mo Beasley, Researcher/Educator, Brian Knowles, and Co-Founder of Project T.H.U.G, David L. Jackson, the essence of this talkback will unpack how non-sexual relationships between men are tainted and looked down upon, as well as, the effects of those responses, be it emotional instability or generational traumas.
This production contains strong language.
“THE BROTHERS SIZE is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the
