The 9th Edition of Miami Performance Festival International ‘20” (M/P ’20) will take place through virtual live streaming and virtual platform this year focusing of the critical state of the Earth now coincides with the coronavirus pandemic, proving core questions of the ecological crisis, inequality, income inequality and racist politic we are witnessing. This situation requires a new global earthly politics, which also implies new policies for performances and festival.
Hence, the live M/P’20 will take place on Miami Beach produced by Edge Zones and will be published in a digital performance platform and thus be connected to a non-local event field in real and virtual spaces. A three-day Streaming-Festival with a program consisting of live performances and the virtual space, as well as interviews and talks, will open the festival starting on September 1, 2020 culminating with a week of live streaming performances September 9-11, 2020 with a series of live and video curated performances with local Miami artists at Faena Forum, Miami Beach, each evening from 9 P.M. to 10:00 PM.
The exhibition will become an echo chamber, a resonating space of symbiotic forms of communication—a response to the symbiotic planet. The recognition that life on Earth arises and endures through the symbiosis of all life forms also demands new modes of communication.
