News release from Robert Rosenberg:
We are looking for GLBT artists to perform at A Taste of Out in the Tropics showcase, a part of the Miami Beach Sleepless Night event, Saturday, November 7, 2009 (www.sleeplessnight.org). This showcase will take place at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road.
If you work in theater, dance, music, spoken word or film (there will be video projection), and what you do addresses queer content in any way you choose to define it, we’re interested. We are especially looking for work that is artistically adventurous and high quality, that tackles challenging issues of gender and sexual identity, contemporary social and political issues, or is just plain fun! A very special national musical artist will be coming to Miami to be featured at the evening as well, so this is a chance to share the stage with other great performers.
Artists’ sets must be in the 15-minute range with simple tech requirements so that a number of performers can be presented back to back. A Taste of Out in the Tropics is a preview of South Florida’s first full-fledged gay, lesbian, bi and trans contemporary performing arts festival, Out in the Tropics, coming to Miami in 2010.
Please contact Robert Rosenberg at Robert@tropicalwavemiami.com or (305) 532-7256 with questions and inquiries. Artists materials, including DVD’s and CD’s, can be sent to FUNDarte, 7601 Byron Avenue, #4C, Miami Beach, FL, 33141, attn: Out in the Tropics. A Taste of Out in the Tropics is presented by Robert Rosenberg/Tropical Wave Productions, in association with FUNDarte (www.fundarte.us) and MiamiARTzine.com, with the support of the City of Miami Beach.
