About This Event
Live Arts Miami is proud to present a special double-bill of new climate-conscious dance works by Dale Andree and Sandra Portal-Andreu, the second installment in the LALA Performance Series featuring unforgettable new performances addressing climate change and sustainability produced by the 2020/2021 LALA Artists In Residence. The works will be presented free at PAMM for two nights only in the adjacent Palm Terrace outdoors, featuring sweeping views of Biscayne Bay.
>> Such Rooted Things is a new dance work that speaks powerfully to its place and time, connecting our human stories to the environment in which we live and the fragile ecology of coastal South Florida. The work combines movement, film, and original music into a multidimensional theater experience that is at once timely, relevant and poignant, exploring climate change through an intergenerational lens.
>> CIRCA/MIA Ever wonder what Miami will be like in the year 2050? What if we asked our children? Sandra Portal Andreu’s Circa/MIA is a one-of-a-kind multi-media performance and film exploring visions of Miami’s future based on drawings, interviews, and dialogue with 37 children across Miami-Dade County, and performed by six of the children’s mothers. The performance is accompanied by the eclectic live sounds of Miami’s own, Afrobeta. Explore how the hopes and dreams of a child can inform our notions of the past, present, and future of our coastal city on the brink of climate crisis.
