Greig Coetzee in
The Actors Co-Operative Production of
White Men with Weapons and
The Blue Period of Milton Van der Spuy
Acclaimed at Lincoln Center and the Edinburg Fringe, South African actor/writer Greig Coetzee brings two of his sensational, award-winning one-person shows to Carnival Center's intimate Studio Theater. Whether bitterly funny in as a military draftee during the fall of Apartheid in White Men with Weapons or bittersweet as Milton van der Spuy, a would-be genius with more ambition than talent and with murder on his mind, Coetzee is a theatrical tour de force and not to be missed!

Dec. 16, 17 at 6:30 p.m.

jazz
Arturo Sandoval
The Trumpet's Journey Through Cuban Rhythms
A part of the Carnival Center – Chivas Regal Jazz Series
A brilliant trumpeter and bandleader, "Arturo Sandoval is the sort of virtuoso artist who comes along only once or twice in a generation (The Guardian)." Sandoval's playing is spectacular, whether in an Afro-Cuban groove or tearing up a bebop tune. This Miami native's explosive mixture of jazz, classical, rock and traditional Cuban music is simply sensational.

Dianne Reeves
Christmas Time Is Here
A part of the Carnival Center – Chivas Regal Jazz Series
The Grammy-Award winner, whose sexy and sophisticated singing in Good Night and Good Luck seduced moviegoers everywhere, sings the beloved songs of the holidays from her latest recording triumph, Christmas Time Is Here. Imbuing her unique jazz interpretations with a soulful touch of R&B, "Dianne's the legitimate extension of all of the good things that have gone on before, from Ethel Waters to Ella Fitzgerald (Down Beat)."

multimedia theater
The End Of Cinematics
Conceived, written, and directed by Mikel Rouse

IT's a Whole New Way of Looking at Music
IT's a Whole New Way of Hearing Your Dreams
The Ziff Ballet Opera House morphs into a post-MTV-hyper- edited-video- theater universe, where lovers meet, hearts break, and life is reconstructed in a cyber space. In The End of Cinematics actors and images merge and collide to a Beatles-influenced- hip-hop-flavored -electronica- popping soundtrack.
See IT, feel IT, hear IT, experience IT.
What is IT? IT is the way we live now.

December 29; 8 p.m.
$78, $65, $55, $35, $15
Ziff Ballet Opera House



theater
CABARET UNKEMPT
World Premiere!
Cabaret Unkempt is a co-commissioning project by DiverseWorks in partnership with Carnival Center for the Performing Arts and the National Performance Network Creation Fund. The Creation Fund is sponsored by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, Altria, and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency).

Cabaret Unkempt is also co-commissioned by 651 Arts.
Cabaret Unkempt is an irreverent and satirical one-person memory piece mixing video, music, and poetry. Miami-based writer and performer Jennylin Duany explores her Cuban-American background, her body, her self-image and her moving often hilarious experiences as a performer of "size" in a culture where size definitely matters. "In this piece I pay homage to the excess parts of me that have been there for such a long time."
December 29 @ 8 p.m.,
December 30 @ 6 p.m. & 9 p.m.,
December 31 @ 5 p.m.
$30, $15
