MIAMI PERFORMANCE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL (M/P ’12)
July 26 – 29th, 2012
From July 26 – 29th, 2012 Edge Zones Projects a Miami based non-profit arts organization will host the first Miami Performance International Festival (M/P’12 ).
The festival draws upon the rich local and international cultural landscapes to present masters of performance and installation art who will work alongside both established and emerging artists selected from around the world. This intensive contemporary arts event will take place at three different sites throughout Miami-Dade County: Downtown Miami, the Miami Design District and the Botanical Gardens of the City of Miami Beach.
This innovative program will explore the breaking down of boundaries between visual art, music, dance and poetry. In collaboration with a consortium of three arts institutions and curators, M/P ’12 will provide a platform and support artists to realize reflexive and culturally poignant projects. Miami will be the stage for this dynamic laboratory.
A dynamic dialogue between time based art practice and its documentation will occur through a comprehensive exhibition of site-reactive installations. Live performances will be presented to the public in a participatory discourse during the four-day program. The festival, which is free to the general public, will include workshops, lectures and artist talks.
