On a recent afternoon Carlota Pradera and Lazaro Godoy both peered at the empty, black performance space and pondered the narrative of the upcoming show, Bare Bones. Neither would reveal the show’s narrative, as every aspect of the production, from the tree trunks to the natural vines used as props, will project life in its organic form. And the movement will be propelled from a visc..

Rosie Herrera learned young that a show girl is never the star of the show. As a teenager working the cabaret at the Teatro Bellas Artes in Little Havana early aughts, she posed prettily on the side of the stage, jutting out her hip to display her costume, and extending her arms to frame the featured comedian. She never forgot what if felt like to be a piece of sexy scenery. “You ha..

Always with an eye for movement, Momentum Dance Company’s founder and Artistic Director Delma Iles chose to base the company’s latest children’s ballet on Rumpletsiltskin in part because she was intrigued by the movement possibilities that come with spinning straw into gold. Iles also wanted to tap into the idea of wishing as the catalyst for change: “Rumpletsiltskin is..

Monaco is famous for the Monte Carlo Casino, Grand Prix racing, and its location on the French Riviera. But it also has a globe-trotting boys choir, which returns to Miami at the end of the month. As part of a tour of the East Coast, the Monaco Boys Choir will perform a free concert on July 28, at 7:30 p.m., at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Miami. “They are the musical amba..

Whether it’s castanets, the polka-dot dresses or the dour faces as dancers stomp their feet, there are certain elements that have always been associated with flamenco dance and music. But flamenco is much more than that. Flamenco is surprisingly rich, complex and varied, especially in a contemporary context. South Florida audiences will have the opportunity to discover as much w..

Many local music presenters take a break during the off-season. But the Coral Gables United Church of Christ starts its Summer Concert Series on June 5. Now in its 29th year, the series features artists who play a variety of styles of jazz and classical music. “The mission of the church is one that’s very much with the arts,” says Mark Hart, executive and artistic directo..

Like most Miami natives, Orchestra Miami music director Elaine Rinaldi has driven by the majestic Scottish Rite Masonic Center building by Lummus Park countless times, but never gone inside. Finally, one of those times it hit her. “I thought: What would be an incentive for me and a lot of other people to go inside?” she asks with a teenage giddiness. “A concert.” Su..

The pressure may be subsiding for Susan Danis and Ramón Tebar. The CEO and music director are now completing the first season that they planned since taking the helm of Florida Grand Opera in 2012. This season proved to be well-balanced, with an adventurous touch, closing with Jules Massenet’s seldom-performed Thaïs. FGO’s current leadership has departed slightly fr..

Llevarlo todo a su mínima expresión. Depurar, limpiar, reducir hasta llegar al hueso. Así buscan comunicarse a través de la danza y de la música Carlota Pradera y Lázaro Godoy en su nueva pieza experimental, Bare Bones. Bare Bones, con estreno pautado para el 13 de junio (y en cartelera hasta el 28 del mes) es parte de la serie SandBox que iniciar..

Todo eso que suena a cliché sobre los hispanos -- que si son apasionados, tienen ritmo, y destilan sensualidad -- perfectamente podría aplicarse a los bailarines de Ballet Hispánico. Y no hay nada malo en ello. Por el contrario. Porque sus bailarines sí son apasionados en escena, sobresalen como virtuosos del ritmo, y sus movimientos seducen por lo sensuales qu..

De repente, es como si todo el sur de la Florida hubiera caído bajo el embrujo del flamenco. Ya sea por otra celebración del Flamenco Festival Miami en el Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts (Feb. 27-March 8); el estreno mundial del ballet flamenco Señorita Julia, de Ballet Flamenco La Rosa, en el Koubek Center; o sencillamente un tablao en un restaurante de ..

El cantante, compositor y autor español Santiago Auserón no es la típica estrella de rock.
