The Project [theatre] presents US Drag by Gina Gionfriddo
3100 North Miami Avenue
Angela and Allison are over-educated and under-employed. They sure as hell aren’t about to waste their days making minimum wage while women with inferior minds and shoddy grammar make six figures. All Angela and Allison want is independent wealth, public esteem, and a little citrus in their vodka — is that so much to ask?

So what do you do when you need a payday and a claim to fame while you’re still pretty enough to enjoy it? Cue a deranged serial attacker named Ed.

The Project [theatre] is Miami’s theatre alternative igniting a new generation’s thirst for live theatre by blurring the line between spectator and spectacle. The Project creates events, which immerse the audience inside the world of the play — a world where anything is possible.

9:00 PM
Homo-Sapiens present Kamel-Bak at SwampSpace

3940 North Miami Ave
Exploring the Judeo- Christian / Islamic clash as one of the defining aspects of our era, Homo-Sapiens aim to override the default to fear, that ‘difference’ so easily generates to present aspects of the cultural conflict that are meant to round out perceptions based on the kind of events that are easy to find on the evening news. The group has as a primary goal to bring to life the endless realm of shared human experience with a desire to create new forms of Live and Media Art that blend aspects of art-world-style performance, club/nightlife and theatrical performance, video, dance, vocals, music, photography, and installation.
