28 Sep I Am Made In Mexico by Astrid Hadad
I Am Made In Mexico by Astrid Hadad (Mexico)
Jun. 1st at 8:30 p.m. | The Colony Theater, Miami Beach
With outrageous wearable art, fierce Mexico-City performance art diva Astrid Hadad mixes feminism and fabulosity in extravagant events featuring a live band. She confronts politics, Mexican hypocrisy, machismo, and corruption in cabaret-style productions filled with music combining ranchera, bolero, rumba and rock, and featuring extravagant costumes, which have become a hallmark of her performances. This cultural icon has inherited a unique Mexican female surrealism and created her own that pulses with campy humor and irony.
75 minutes with no intermission.

THE COLONY THEATRE is located in the heart of South Beach on Lincoln Road. It first opened on January 25, 1935 as a Paramount Pictures movie house. Recently, the building underwent a three-year $6.5 million renovation to restore its original Art Deco grandeur and update its stage and technical equipment.
Today, the COLONY is a 417-seat state of the art venue proudly managed by Miami New Drama. Its impressive art deco design makes it one of the crown jewels of Miami Beach. The theatre hosts an exciting array of events, including music, dance, comedy, and theatre performances. The Colony Theatre is also home to Miami New Drama’s own exciting theatrical season. http://www.colonymb.org/
