    Touch Me Hear is an experimental multimedia work developed last month at Inkub8 as a part of their generous Artist Residency. It was commissioned by Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center (New York). The opus explores the relationship between touch, sound and movement. Body parts and its extensions such as hair and clothes become performable musical instruments. From skin sensations to complex digital tactile simulations, the piece exposes disappearing awareness between what can be felt and what actually is. A continuum of scenes filled with humor, solitude and emotionally charged movement contemplate the contemporary world of intertwined vibrations and modalities.

    'REVOLUTION/EVOLUTION,' a production that brings a new perspective to the ongoing dialogue between FLAMENCO and PROGRESSIVE ROCK.  Experimentation between these forms was pioneered by Flamenco artists such as Camarón de la Isla, Lole y Manuel and the iconic Spanish rock group Triana.  Lead by Artistic Director Ana Miranda and Musical Director Carl Ferrari, this multi media event will feature contemporary dance based in Flamenco from Aire Dance Company and live music by the Gypsy Cat Band. 

    The one night only event, scheduled for September 28, 2013 will be held at one of Miami’s most progressive venues, 7th Circuit Studios, home of the MOKSHA arts collective, known for presenting cutting edge bands and performance groups. The performers include: Dancers/Choreographers Ana Miranda, Pioneer Winter, Joanna Ursal, and Marie Whitman; Musicians Carl Ferrari (acoustic/electric guitar), Andres Roa (drum set), Richard Rippe (bass), Ronald Rogriguez (sax) and Flamenco singer, Jaime Moreno.
