Miami On Stage 2011
Miami already has a homegrown, exciting arts scene that will only continue to flourish and grow through increased opportunities for professional artists to present their performance work. FUNDarte’s Miami On Stage is a curated multi-disciplinary performing arts series featuring work by South Florida artists. The series includes one-to-two commissions of new work per season. Now in its second year, Miami On Stage has literally taken its name to another level through an innovative collaboration with the Miami-Dade County Auditorium and its new On.Stage Black.Box and again at The Byron-Carlyle Theater in Miami Beach. The series will present four to five performances, featuring work from South Florida musicians, actors, playwrights, dancers, poets, filmmakers and visual artists. It will also include a number of complementary events, such as panel discussions, open rehearsals and post-show talk-backs. Other upcoming events will be announced shortly.
The Miami On Stage series will feature the following four performances at the new On.Stage Black.Box Theater at Miami-Dade County Auditorium:
March 18, 2011 - Latin Jazz Night Jam with Yorgis Goiricelaya, Hilario Bell and other musicians will present an “unplugged” concert. Goiricelaya and Bell both recently independently produced new albums.
