Well, maybe Miami needs more of that type of shit, and thanks to the local strangeoid culture we'll be getting it soon.
Avant Gardeist Ana Mendez is producing a one off anti dance performance sponsored by Bacardi and in cahoots with the Psychic Youth about record producer Joe Meek.
We spoke to anti-dancer Ricardo Guerrero about the show. After the jump, here's what he had to say about life, death, and hugging & pushing.

For this work she choreographed 5 non-dancers. It's a movement oriented type of piece
based on aesthetics, and about Joe Meeks, who produced pop records and invented a lot of studio equipment that's still used now.
He was ahead of his time and he actually shot himself and it's kind of like a seance based performance playing with the idea of the ritual.
It's basically just his life, celebrating him on his death anniversary.

There's a post show with Electric Bunnies, Dino Felipe, and Harry Merry, this lunatic kind of guy.
There's free Bacardi drinks and beer all night.
It's not typical what you think of dancers. This is more like movements; hugging and pushing. The show is frantic and dark, pretty dark, I guess. It should be interesting."
