Edge Zones presents the sixth annual Miami Performance International Festival (M/P’18). Founded in 2012, this year’s festival will be held between June 22 and 23, 2018. According to chief curator and founder Charo Oquet, M/P’18 will be an intense and stimulating week where dozens of local, national and international artists will perform new and exciting work.
Description: M/P’18 will be staged at Edge Zones space in Allapattah Miami and at Lummus Park, South Beach, with different countries represented and a host of local talent. The festival will show a variety of works and will encourage viewers to investigate performance art, spoken word poetry, and Noise artistic influence and contributions to our visual and sound culture, and will provide the viewer with a unique performance and sound experience beyond the realm of traditional art. A 2-days long interdisciplinary complex multileveled platform which will include videos of performances, live performances, noise, experimental sound art audience participation, publications, artist talks and visual art exhibitions, demonstrates the commitment by Edge Zones to the professional development of South Florida artists in national and international forum.
M/P ’18 is a stage for both young and emerging artists, curators, critics, and scholars to present their latest work. This world-class performing arts festival will provide the opportunity for our live audience of approximately 6,000 to engage deeply with the ideas emerging from these provocative works.
