Fifth Annual Miami Made Festival Will Run 2/26-3/3

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, together with Riviera South Beach hotel, Alan Lieberman and Nathan Lieberman, present the fifth annual MIAMI MADE FESTIVAL, featuring for 2013 a weeklong showcase of new works-in-progress created and performed by a roster of Miami-based artists across multiple disciplines, all of whom have previously collaborated with the Arsht Center. MIAMI MADE FESTIVAL 2013 will take place from February 26 to March 3 and includes staged play readings and a dance showcase on-site in the Carnival Studio Theater, as well as pop-up performances at the soon-to-be-opened hotel, Riviera South Beach.

ADMISSION TO MIAMI MADE FESTIVAL 2013 EVENTS IS FREE.

"With Miami Made Festival 2013, the Arsht Center is building on its history of nourishing innovative new work with a deeper commitment than ever before to artists who have created work on the Arsht Center stages in the past," said John Richard, president and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. "In addition, the support of the Liebermans and Funding Arts Network this season allows us to continue expanding the boundaries of traditional theater. For the first time in our history, Miami Made brings a terrifically fun immersive theater piece to a premium new venue - Riviera South Beach hotel."

MIAMI MADE FESTIVAL is made possible by presenting sponsors Riviera South Beach hotel, together with Alan Lieberman and Nathan Lieberman, with the generous support from the Funding Arts Network.

The 2013 Festival will launch with a private, invitation-only kickoff reception at Riviera South Beach hotel on Monday, February 25, starting at 7:00 p.m., presented by Ocean Drive Magazine.

STAGED PLAY READINGS

FEAR UP HARSH - By Christopher Demos-Brown, Directed by Stuart Meltzer
February 28 @ 7:30 p.m.
Carnival Studio Theater (In the Ziff Ballet Opera House)
Adrienne Arsht Center.
Free tickets are available starting at 10 a.m. on day of performance, in-person only at the Arsht Center Box Office.

Zoetic Stage co-founders and 2012 Carbonell nominees Christopher Demos-Brown and Stuart Meltzer team up with a cast of Miami's best actors (including Todd Allen Durkin, Steve Anthony and Arielle Hoffman) to present a staged reading of this dramatic new work-in-progress. FEAR UP HARSH focuses on the process by which America's highest award for valour (The Congressional Medal of Honor) is given and, more broadly, how the entire concept of "awards" and "commendations" tends to skew our understanding of reality. "Fear Up Harsh" is a term used by the military to designate certain types of "enhanced interrogation" techniques that were legally sanctioned in the "global war on terror" post-9/11.

March 1 @ 7:30 p.m.
Carnival Studio Theater (In the Ziff Ballet Opera House)
Adrienne Arsht Center.
Free tickets are available starting at 10 a.m. on day of performance, in-person only at the Arsht Center Box Office.

DINNER PARTIES (IRONIC AND THEMED) is an examination of three contemporary couples attempting to maintain personal dignity in party situations. The play is a mix of comedy and drama and explores the endless pressures of marriage, faithfulness and happiness. The all-star Miami-based cast includes Nicholas Richberg, Amy McKenna, Chaz Mena, Gregg Weiner and Lindsey Forgey.

TWO-MERZ -- By Mark Della Ventura, Gabe Hammad and David Michael Sirois
