Eden Roc Resort Hotel, South Miami Beach, Florida
Commissioned by Miami Light Project and Dancing in the Streets, this performance moves from a stairway, to nowhere, to a dance with senior citizens under a floating ceiling, and culminates poolside to live drumming and a firelit raft. A magician serves as the guide through a hotel that upholds the illusion that the visitor has landed in paradise. The audience can experience the work as tourist, resident, exile or worker. Written by Terry Wolverton and music by Amy Knoles.
