2019-2020 Performing Arts Season

¡Hola Miami!

For 17 years, the FUNDarte team has built a consistent presence in this magic city with the goal of creating unique experiences where people celebrate live culture.  Each season, we plan around a series of notions that reflect our values and interests as presenters and artist citizens.  We engage people of all ages with theatre, we bring the timeliest projects in flamenco and other genres from the Americas and Spain, and address complex issues such as queer and gender identity and climate change through performance, entre otros.  In difficult times, insistimos en el arte, and challenging artists porque art is not a luxury.  We welcome you to join another season of theatre, dance, music and media arts that expand the boundaries between local and global.  With a multicultural and international menu of artists from countries such as Brazil, Spain, Cuba, Chile, and the USA, among others, we fulfill our goal of engaging our communities through the transformative creativity, innovative artistry and cross-cultural communication while serving up a good time based on principles of diversity and access.

Gracias for joining us on this journey!

Best regards,

Team FUNDarte

Unrivaled flamenco masters Casa Patas return to Miami Dade County Auditorium with their newest show, Raíz de 4, created by and featuring Rafael Peral and Marisa Adame.

Raíz de 4 honors the art of Flamenco by delving into its most primitive roots, evoking the convergence of cultures and the folklore of Spain. The work expresses the purest styles of flamenco, some of which are romances, martinetes, fandangosandsoleares, conveyed through the inspired and moving performances by a cast of distinguished dance and musical artists.  Song (cante), dance (baile), guitar (guitarra), and percussion (percusión) seamlessly transmit a genuine love for this art form and take the audience on an intensely authentic and unswerving journey of sensations, emotions and flawless artistic execution.

The recording features lushly arranged original compositions and tributes to timeless Cuban sonero Benny Moré and Puerto Rican salsa king Cheo Feliciano.


FEOS by Teatro y Su Doble (Chile)

Jan. 25 at 8:30 p.m. & 26 at 3:00 p.m. | On.Stage Black.Box at Miami Dade County Auditorium

$30 adults | $25 students and seniors | $20 groups of 10+ | Tickets: Ticketmaster

Written by acclaimed Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderón and inspired by the story “La Noche de los Feos” by Mario Benedetti, “Feos” is a visual feast of Bunraku-style puppetry. A man and a woman who have spent their whole lives alone and subjected to stares due to physical deformities have a chance encounter in line at a movie theatre and together go in search of the light behind the darkness, although nothing is quite as it seems. Incorporating stop motion projections, puppeteering of the highest caliber and a story that challenges audiences to look at their own faults with honesty and acceptance, the production is a unique work of beauty.

In Spanish with English supertitles.

The 2019-2020 U.S. tour of FEOS by Teatro y Su Doble is supported in part by Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America.


5 Passos by Companhia Urbana de Dança (Brazil)

March 21 at 8:30 p.m. | Mid Stage at Miami Dade County Auditorium

$30 adults | $25 students and seniors | $20 groups of 10+ | Tickets: Ticketmaster

Companhia Urbana de Dança is here to teach us a little about the international soul of hip-hop, and brings individual identities, testimonials, and attitudes to the stage with an upbeat, Afro-Brazilian accent. Firmly positioned in the leading urban dance scene in Brazil and internationally, choreographer Sonia Destri Lie’s boldly original mix of contemporary Brazilian dance and hip-hop infuses both forms with new rigor: meditative one moment, explosive the next. Located in the true heart of street dance, Destri strips it of its easy tricks, finding its original emotional depth, expressive range, and poetic integrity with a Brazilian sensibility. Pulling from the peripheral communities of Rio de Janeiro where many of her company members grew up, Companhia Urbana de Dança aims to transcend cultural boundaries, redefining the world favela in the psyche of Brazil and the world by making their dance and their daily work a socio-political—and aesthetic—response to their environment.

Don’t miss this electrifying concert with one of the most powerful shows of the new Brazilian music.

The Portuguese and Spanish lyrics have forged a cross-cultural connection with the people of Latin America. Their concerts are a spectacle of rhythmic explosions, engaging the audiences in singing along in both languages.

Mermaid Truth or Consequences:  A Biodiversity Game Show by Elizabeth Doud / Siren Arts

April & May 2019 | Interventions @ various South Florida locations

This live, interactive game show is hosted by a radical mermaid, and spills out of a parked trailer to strike up conversations with environmental experts about bio-diversity and the mass extinction. These pop-up performances occur along beaches, in parking lots and at farmers markets using a recipe that is one-part game show, one-part science jam, and one-part group mermaid catharsis through magical dances and irreverent siren songs.

This project is produced by FUNDarte as part of Climakaze Miami, and is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge, which funds the best ideas for the arts in Miami.  See for performance locations throughout 2019-2020.
