florida's pioneer of innovative arts and culture

Marcia Milhazes Dance Company

Award-winning Rio de Janeiro-based choreographer Marcia Milhazes returns to Miami as part of a three city tour with her newest work, Tempo de Verão (Time of Summer). Inspired by summertime waltzes and family memories, the heat of the day and the breeze of the evening, Milhazes weaves together subtle variations on human relationships and a love of nature. Joyous, wistful and always sensual, the piece combines a lilting musical score with a collage of the sounds of summer itself. The playful sets are created by internationally renowned visual artist Beatriz Milhazes. The company comes to Miami as part of a three-city tour that includes New York and New Orleans. Marcia Milhazes work has been previously presented in France, Germany, England and Portugal.

"Milhazes' work possesses a languorous fluidity and sultry physicality."- Dance Magazine
