With original content from generous and talented writers who want to make a difference in supporting the arts, needs donations to continue its mission: to be a definitive and contributive voice for the arts in South Florida with original content including reviews, interviews, previews, and photo and video galleries.

Our writers receive little or no monetary compensation. While we sell ads, run fundraisers, and receive grants, all of these endeavors still do not provide sufficient funds for the growth of our staff.

What's Happening in The Magic City

By Michelle F. Solomon

Signals by Juraj Kojs

Until March 1.

An interactive, electroacoustic sound installation and multimedia performance created by Miami-based Slovakian composer, performer, and multimedia artist Juraj Kojs, marks the third installment of MTC’s 2013-14 SandBox Series, which offers performing artists a six-week residency in which to develop, rehearse, and perform a new work, as well as teach classes for the community. The SandBox Series is made possible by a $100,000 Knights Arts Challenge grant provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

For this new work, Kojs utilizes various non-verbal sonic signals (rooster calls, beeps, alarms, sirens, ringtones, video game sounds, and computer earcons) to invite the audience to navigate through a forest of various sonic and tactile experiences and explore a multiplicity of ways we interact with signals in the physical world and the digital domain. Joining Kojs for this interdisciplinary work will be his frequent collaborators, dancer-choreographer Carlota Pradera (also a 2013-14 SandBox Series artist) and costume and set designer Kim Yantis. Support for SIGNALS has been provided, in part, by The Foundation for Emerging Technologies and Arts and the Harold Golen Gallery.

Feb. 14-March 1. MTC Sandbox * Miami Theater Center *

Miami Beach Arts Trust:

Building a stronger arts environment on Miami Beach and beyond

In addition to presenting workshops and spotlighting individual artists in all areas of the arts, the Miami Beach Arts Trust also acts as the fiscal agent for smaller, non-profit organizations. It now has a volunteer board of directors that oversees its activities.
