LUCK by Sandra Portal-Andreu Performance Dates/TimeSaturday, December 15 at 11:00 AM and 1:30 PMSunday, December 16 at 11:00 AM and 1:30 PM SynopsisSandra Portal-Andreu's site-specific work Luck is set and inspired at the historic Hialeah Park (Hialeah Park Studios). This live performance explores notions of luck and fortune in early Miami through the dichotomy of the human spirit that conceived it and the majestic horses that manifested it. Luck will activate spaces on-site, where the likes of Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, and the Rat Pack once visited. First opened for thoroughbred racing in 1925 by Glenn Curtis and James H. Bright, Hialeah Park Race Track is the oldest existing recreational facility in Southeast Florida. Known for its beautiful European-inspired architecture, rich history of thoroughbred racing, and Audubon bird sanctuary featuring the iconic pink flamingos, the site has transformed and evolved over the course of its 90+ years. Sandra Portal-Andreu's Luck highlights this transformation further - both the architectural and community history of one of Miami's most hidden gems, and shares a uniquely creative experience for new and returning members of the public. This premiere was commissioned by the Pioneer Winter Collective and its site-specific performance initiative GRASS STAINS, supported by the John and James L. Knight Foundation, as well as the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
