“La fotografía artística no se realiza para agradar o desgranar al espectador, es simplemente una herramienta libre y espontánea de comunicación visual “. -Beatriz Poluk . 
Para los artistas las expectaciones siempre son las mismas , lo importante es llegar al espectador, “quien es el que tiene la ultima palabra“ y poder llegar al punto de encuentro de comunicación entre el espectador y el artista

"In fair Florida where we lay our scene, a brave new world like few have seen"

A unique interdisciplinary performance combining Afro-Cuban and American Ballet, Spoken Word, History and Current events inspired by Shakespeare’s earliest, and final works. Romeo and Juliet, is an adaptation of English poet Arthur Brooke's powerful message of sin and redemption. When it opened on the stage - the rest was history! R & J The Tempest Too! includes Florida's rich history of explorers and immigrant journeys through our state as Shakespeare penned his last work, The Tempest.

The setting is early 1600 when European monarchies contracted explorers to learn more about the rest of the world and religious wars forced many to flee to the Americas. Florida's coast and peoples were exotic, sometimes dangerous, but many braved the ocean, shipwrecked and tossed about by unimaginable tempests, and the harsh, isolated life they'd find, for safer havens. Like the Dickinsons who experienced an epic journey on foot from Stewart to Saint Augustine in the 1690's. Their detailed journal of encounters with tropical creatures, escape from native tribes, eventually finding a Spanish military escort to freedom, reads like an adventure novel!

But it actually happened here in Florida. Shakespeare heard these nautical tales from returning shipmen, merchants and missionaries. Choreography and a mysterious Narrator in "R & J The Tempest Too!" take the audience on a fast moving journey from the 1600's in 'La Florida' into the future!

Zest Collective Performance Art group, NYC, features award-winning dance artists Lukasz Zieba & Mariusz Daniel Kujawski from Poland, Midori Nonaka & Riiko Kitayama from Japan, with Guest Artists, Christie Scitturo, and the Actors of Outre Theatre Company. Choreography by Cuban Ballet Artist, Isanusi Garcia Rodriguez with Gentry Isaiah George, Creative Director of ZCPA, create three masterful works performed at key moments in the play blend American history with plots of 'Romeo and Juliet' (R&J) and 'The Tempest' to bring about a suprise ending that feels very current!

Where: The Performance will take on the Miami Hispanic Cultural Arts Center outside Stage, with seating capacity for 300 people.
