Energy drinks, people were talking about energy drinks. Jeez, get your mind out of the gutter. Youll need to stock up on extra Red Bull, Rockstar, and Monster Saturday and throw in a couple of shots of Colada for good measure. Its that time of year when Miami Beach gets transformed into a glorious haven of culture, complete with art, dance performances, parades, and live music. So set those clocks back and get ready to binge on 13 hours of non-stop culture, ´cause its gonna be a Sleepless Night, baby!
Exciting stuff happens in practically every neighborhood on the beach, starting at 5:00 p.m. and ending at 6:00 a.m. In North Beach, the South Florida Jazz Orchestra will be performing at the Band Shell. At the Normandy Fountain, the Dance Now! Ensemble will be joyfully pirouetting. And at the Byron Carlyle Theater (500 71st. St., North Miami Beach), there will be a performance by Teatro en Miami and a double feature of classic Mexican horror flicks. In Collins Park, theres a screening of Charlie Chaplin shorts, Pablo Canos Musical Marionettes, and, at 10:00 p.m., the world premiere of Animate Objects Physical Theaters gravity defying performance. Therell be live classical music at the public library, Seraphic Fire at the Miami Beach Community Church, a muy caliente musical showcase presented by Rudy Perez at the Euclid Oval from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m.. Seriously, just about every destination on the beach offers something an open house party and live music at the Fillmore, a multi-media art extravaganza at the Botanical Garden, performance after performance at the Colony, and cutting edge theater on Española Way. And at 9:30 you can find us on 21st Street, taking a gander at Spiegelstages Absinthe, the acrobatic/burlesque/variety show where gloriously seductive dudes and dudettes will amaze your eyes and arouse your senses.
