There’s very little I won’t agree to if puppet art, tacos and sangria are involved.
I’m pretty excited to attend O, Miami’s My Soul’s Shadow next Thursday April 23rd. For those of you that don’t know, April is poetry month in the MIA. There are a ton of events (mostly free) put on for the good folks of Miami Dade County in hopes we can experience and interact with a poem.
I went to their last event Poetry in the Park, which was fantastic, and that prompted me to search for more cool, artsy events. This one in particular caught my attention because cinematic shadow puppetry based on a twentieth-century Spanish poet, plus tacos and sangria, is a combination straight from the poetry gods.
The show takes place on the Miami's Little River Warehouse Dock and will include shadow puppets, old-school overhead projectors and an original score performed live by Nu Deco (a super posh orchestra ensemble). Before the performance, the audience will be able to interact with art installations of light and sound in an intimate outdoor courtyard. Then, for dessert, tacos and sangria or wine courtesy of Whole Foods Miami.
If this sounds like an awesome adventure to you, pop over to omiami.org and get yourself some tickets. I will be there! Feel free to give a shout if you’re going!
