Miami City Ballet

  • Stravinsky Violin Concerto (Balanchine/Stravinsky)
  • Mercuric Tidings (Taylor/Schubert)
  • Slaughter on Tenth Avenue (Balanchine/Rodgers)

George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue headlines this program with a hilarious parody of hijinks and high kicks, gangsters and cops in this ballet about a tap dancer and the impossible stripper he falls in love with. Balanchine’s sassy and spirited choreography and Richard Rodgers’ tantalizing Broadway score open the season full of laughter in a 1930s speakeasy. Balanchine’s plotless masterpiece, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, bookends this program with Stravinsky’s timeless score setting the stage for all-out dancing and technique in its purest form. Balancing out the program is a tribute to the late Paul Taylor with his masterwork, Mercuric Tidings – a celebration of “body in motion” in this “exhilarating, blisteringly fast dance,” the Miami Herald acclaims.

Alternative Facts by Paul Ramirez Jonas - Pinecrest Gardens

Sunday, Oct 20, 2019 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM - English

MOAD MDC will present Alternative Facts, an interactive public performance by Paul Ramirez Jonas that explores the concept that truth is a social contract. Over the course of two days in two different parts of the city, the artist will engage individual members of the public in a series of actions that call into question commonly understood ideas about facts, authority, exchange, value, and trust. For Alternative Facts, Ramirez Jonas will set up notary stations in public locations. For several hours each day, he will invite passersby to participate in a simple exchange in which they sit at the table and make an untruthful statement. Through a brief but elaborate process, the artist will notarize each statement as a testament to its truthfulness. The participants are then asked to pay for the service with a gold coin, which is made by the artist electroplating their spare change in a gold solution. The exchange results in two drawings: one for the participant to keep and another to be displayed near the notary station.

Les Miserables

Sunday, Oct 20, 2019 at 1:00 PM - English

Cameron Mackintosh's epic musical is back! Based on Victor Hugo's novel, this sweeping epic is one of the most popular musicals in history, a tale of love and revolution that draws audiences in time and time again. Its classic score, written by Herbert Kretzmer and Claude-Michel Schonberg, includes the timeless 'I Dreamed A Dream', 'One Day More' and 'Do You Hear the People Sing'.

Nominated for three Tony Awards, this latest Broadway production is a more than worthy chapter in Les Miserables' long history. It debuted at the Imperial Theatre in 2014 and ran for two years, drawing huge acclaim for its stripped down storytelling, which jettisons some of the bloat attached to previous productions, and the atmospheric video projections that lend the show a hugely cinematic backdrop.

Daddy Issues

Sunday, Oct 20, 2019 at 5:00 PM - English

David Goldyn Productions in Conjunction with Theatre at CSL presents Daddy Issues.

The Off Broadway hit Daddy Issues, written and directed by David Goldyn, is returning to South Florida after a short but successful stint at Boca Raton’s Willow Theatre last March. The production will run from October 18th through November 3rd at the Theatre at CSL (Center for Spiritual Living) in Oakland Park.

How far will a gay guy go to please his parents? Daddy Issues centers on Donald Moscowitz, (Elijah Pearson) an openly gay actor living in New York City in 1982. His overbearing Jewish parents (Elli Murray and David Goldyn) know he’s gay but that doesn’t stop them from demanding a grandchild. When Donald learns that Grandma Moscowitz (Vicki Klein) will double his inheritance if he produces a grandchild, he enlists the help of the ten-year old kid from downstairs (Michael Salvanto) to play his son from an experimental tryst he had in college. His two best friends Henrietta (Kayla Fainer) and Levi (Jesus Reyna), a drag star from the village, fight over who will play the birth mother, Mary Ellen McQuire (Erin Pittleman). When Mom and Dad show up what could go wrong?

Daddy Issues was nominated for Best Off Broadway Play by Broadway World in 2017. In New York it was hailed as “hilarious and heartfelt” (Michael Musto) and the Huffington Post proclaimed it “a frothy whipped dessert of a show.” Seth Kubersky at The Orlando Weekly called the Florida premiere of Daddy Issues in 2018, “the rare snappy play that would go over equally well in a gay nightclub as well as a Miami retirement home.” The Weekly went on to say that “if it were a sit-com on NBC’s Thursday’s lineup, it might run for six seasons.” Prophetically, the play has already received sit-com interest in Los Angeles.

Tickets are on sale now, and are available by phone at call and online at website. Ticket prices range from $35 - $60.

Discussion in Situ with Martin A. Tsang on Sunday, September 29, 2019 from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

MOAD presents a series of public programs related to its current exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet. Rather than a formal sit-down lecture, MOAD's "Discussions In Situ' are engaging, conversational, and scholarly exhibition tours lead by a wide array of interdisciplinary experts. While pointing to specific art work and archival material on view, Tsang sparks a conversation on "The Hidden Cabrera,' highlighting Cabrera's biography and research methods.

Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Edouard Glissant. The show is comprised of an international group of artists and collectives consider notions of shifting and porous borders€”and how crossing borders has shaped our world. They articulate various aspects of the two scholars' thoughts on race, diaspora, colonialization, creolization, language, and territory, particularly with regards to Miami's position in a world that never stops turning.

Where the Oceans Meet will be on view until January 12, 2020.
