CLIMAKAZE MIAMI 2017 Presented by FUNDArte


CLIMAKAZE MIAMI 2017 Presented by FUNDArte

Produced by FUNDarte in collaboration with the Miami Dade County Auditorium, Climakaze Miami will host three diverse days of activities on May 5, 6 & 7, 2017 at Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33135).  This year’s Climakaze Miami will feature the artistic expressions of two extraordinary women, Inez Barlatier and Moira Finucane, and will sponsor two free eco-theater workshops by the Superhero Clubhouse (NYC).  Climakaze Miami 2017 mixes Haiti and Australia in a Miami climate arts event that showcases the gorgeous, wild and profound voices of two distinct performers, and offers community engagement through eco-theater labs that allow participants from diverse backgrounds to experience theater making through a climate lens. 


Friday, May 5th 8:30pm: Moira Finucane (Melbourne, Australia), one of the world’s greatest performance chameleons, hailed as ‘volcanic’ ‘exquisite' 'mesmerizing' by audiences & critics across 5 continents, creator of the world’s most awarded Provocative Variety, creates a transcendent emporium of Gothic dreams, birds of prey, soaring wings, rock'n'roll angels, apocalyptic fairy tales, soul-searing music and physical madness in this new work.  In its U.S. premiere, The Rapture is art vs. extinction.


Saturday, May 6th 8:30pm: Inez Barlatier (Miami, USA), a Miami-grown songstress, will share original music from her new solo project , “Claim Your Fame”.  Originally a founding member of Kazoots, and long-time member of Jan Sebon & Kazak International, Barlatier has performed extensively as a singer-songwriter, folkloric dancer, actress & hand drum percussionist.  She has defined a powerful Roots sound that reflects her Haitian heritage and infuses African, Brazilian, and Caribbean influences in a strong contemporary flow, giving voice to a wholly unique representation of tropical folk.  Special guest appearance by artist Jan Sebon.


Barlatier’s concert is part of FUNDarte’s From the Barrio to the Mainstage commissioning project funded by the Knight Foundations Miami Arts Challenge.
