Miami Performance International Festival is an Edge Zones Production

June 14-29, 2014



Edge Zones presents the third annual Miami Performance International Festival this year in three cycles: June 14, 15; June 21, 22, 28 and 29. M/P ‘14 is concern with the limits of visual and living arts and the performance space. The program of performance art is accompanied by video screenings, talks and workshops. The festival exclusively dedicated to performance art, an artistic practice of transcending borders that is widely discussed today mostly uses only language and movement. It represents a structure for planning festivals, a vision for continuity between festivals, a commitment to community and place, and a dedication to new and under-recognized art. M/P ‘14 is a tremendous opportunity for the public to come face-to-face with the breadth and depth of performance art and offers visceral and challenging performance works by renowned, mid-career and emerging artists from 10 countries, as well as more than 10 national and local artists. This annual event provides a look urgencies, political conditions, and historical narratives that inform the work of contemporary artists around the world in a range of media, and presents cross-disciplinary, collaborative work that speaks to the high level of innovation, critical thinking, and social engagement in Miami. Events are free but availability is limited.

In celebration of Miami-Dade’s diverse art scene, works will be showcased across the city in a range of sites, including: the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens and at Edge Zones Projects at the Miami Design District.

Miami Performance International Festival ‘14 is a much-needed networking platform for the art community and brings together the most important artists from Latin America, Asia, the Caribbean and Europe in the field of performance art. M/P ’14 aims to provide a public platform for remarkable, unusual and engaged performances. Performance art is primarily geared to the creation of an ephemeral art.  The Festival offers the public an opportunity to discover a realm at the edge of artistic disciplines. Unlike theater and dance, all MP ‘14 performances have no designated areas nor are they presented on a stage, but rather on the floor, dissolving the boundary between the artists and viewers. 

Curated by Charo Oquet, with artists from the Argentina, Colombia, Japan, UK, Poland, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Austria and USA.  This dialogue will continue throughout the year on Internet platforms through the Edge Zones and Miami Performance International Festival web portal (http://www.edgezones.org) and online
