Ekphrasis at the Norton

Friday, May 10, 2019 various times - English

The Ekphrasis Project is an immersive, site-specific performance, conceived and branded by Dance NOW! Miami Artistic Directors and Choreographers Diego Salterini & Hannah Baumgarten. Ekphrasis creates dialogue between choreography and visual arts. The performances are unique, migrating events, where the audience is guided from station to station and drawn in to a multi layered arts experience—a forum for exploring the connections between performance and visual arts or architecture. The work presented is designed directly and inspired by the works on display, and can only be performed as such. It is not a dance performance in a museum, but instead, a unique iteration of the artwork through dance.

Jun 28, 2019 to Jun 30, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Contemporary Dance World Premiere by Abel Berenguer - Objects in the Mirror are Closer than they Appear is the culmination of an international dance exchange between Miami and Havana with choreographer-performers Abel Berenguer (Miami) and Sandra Remy (Havana). This collaborative dance work expresses and explores the illusions and realities of life in Miami after Havana: the sunshine, the false wonderland, and the heartless paradise of a magic city, which also has a refreshing functionality, comfort and decadence as long as you play by the rules. 60 minutes with no intermission.
