Program

8:00 PM
Sinuous Complexity
151 NE 40th Street, Suite 200

Arevalo Gallery is proud to present the exhibit and on-site installation of prominent Miami artist Karen Rifas. On the evening of May 17th there will be a special dance performance within the installation titled Sinuous Complexity, conceived by Dale Andree and will be danced by Thryn Saxon and Angie Lu. In the Arevalo Gallery Project Rifas strives to challenge the preconceived notion of the gallery as an inert space and seductively immerses us in a level of perception and participation beyond the conventional norms that we usually encounter. This series of ephemeral site-specific installations will be accompanied by the to-scale maquettes of current and past installations, together with her most recent works on paper.

PET

PET is an interactive and physical one-man dance theatre piece set in a support group meeting for ex-lovers/serial monogamists, built from an array of interviews and shared experiences of the broken-hearted. Drawing from a repository of human emotions, fears, hopes, dreams and instincts; while forging a blend of movement, speech and actions to tell its story -- PET deals with the complexities of relationships, love, and lack thereof. Written & Performed by Rudi Goblen | Directed by Michael Yawney PET was Commissioned & Presented by Miami Light Project, and created with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
