There is always a bit of trepidation when entering into an all-performance art event. When hastily produced and not well-thought-out, these can be straining – unlike a visual art show of similar (non) quality, it’s hard to just leave if you don’t like it. So the three-day inaugural Miami Performance Festival would be an experiment […]

When I entered the Little Haiti Cultural Center (LHCC) for Same Stage, a night of multicultural dance organized by Afua Hall during the Discover Art! Family Festival, I felt numb and listless, blue and exhausted from the real and imagined burdens of life. The little green boogeymen in our heads sometimes trick us into resisting so […]

The works of 19 artists, some of whom are the most prominent names in contemporary art today, have been fashioned together under the title “Things Beyond Our Control.” It has been curated by Andrew Reed, who was born in […]
Life is absurd. It’s a divine comedy that makes absolute sense and non-sense at the same time. That’s what makes life fun and fundamentally unstable and challenging. In honor of this psychotic tumbleweed of an existence, FUNDarte, the University of Miami Ring Theatre, and the Department of Modern Languages and Literature present the First International […]
Here at my little house on the Rio Blog, I always enjoy hearing from familiar Miami musical voices. And this weekend, because everyone’s attention will be focused the opening Friday of the London Olympics, it’s more than appropriate to bring you word of a musical connection.

Even on a busy afternoon on Lincoln Road, the sound art emanating from under the eaves of the ArtCenter/South Florida (a Knight Arts grantee) is clearly audible, and a seductive invitation to visit more inside. The music is from Gustavo Matamoros and the Listening Gallery (also a grantee), and this composition complements the exhibit currently […]
“Nada Del Amor Me Produce Envidia” (“I Don’t Envy Love”), presented by Flor de un Dia, is an extraordinary one-woman play about envy and the profound black shadow of solitude that will come for us, all of us, one day.
