Corporal Decorum, presented in partnership with the Wolfsonian-FIU and Miami Light Project, is a multidisciplinary performance inspired by Miami Beach’s Historic Art Deco District. This Fall, our goal is to pay a loving tribute to our city’s iconic architectural style and inspire imagination by interpreting it through dance and design. In order to realize this project we’ve sought funding from Miami-Dade County and were awarded their Community Grant, a matching grant that supports projects with strong community involvement that focus on the preservation of heritage and culture. It’s an incredible victory but our work is not done and that’s why we’re reaching out to you. We need your donation to help us meet the grant’s dollar-to-dollar match requirement.
Set for Oct 11th and 12th 2019, the dance performance, choreographed by Liony Garcia, will act as a finale to a guided tour of some of the city’s most distinguishable Art Deco buildings led by art historian, Fredo Rivera. Our goal is to raise $7,000 before Oct 11. Your contribution will help cover production costs, performer salaries, costume production, marketing, and audio/visual services. With the help of the Wolfsonian-FIU, donors will be included in the program printed for the event.
As Corporeal Decorum’s artistic director, I want to thank you in advance for your kind generosity. Preserving and honoring our city’s beloved architecture is an effort done best in collaboration with its citizens. I speak on behalf of all those involved in this project by saying that we couldn’t be more excited to present our work to the public. We hope we’ve inspired you to join us in honoring Deco architecture as a part of every native Miamian’s identity. Your generous contribution will help us cultivate a sense of wonder and delight for our city’s signature style.
