Another week’s over, and it’s time for the weekend happy dance.
Hopefully the deluge that soaked our beautiful city for part of this week will stay away. But just in case, here are a few indoor and virtual ideas to fill your days until Monday rolls around again!
- Take in a few Spanish films from the comfort of your couch.
- Watch Miami’s best dancers from 10 troupes during the virtual Dance Sampler.
- Go thrifting and find great deals.
VIRTUAL CINEMA EN ESPANOL
Get your fill of independent foreign films during the Recent Spanish Cinema Series.
The nine films vary enough by genre that they’re sure to please any film lover: Teen coming-of-age stories, tales of a woman mourning the loss of her son, and of women in their 50s bonding, as well as a cult classic comedy and a film adaptation of a novel by a well-known satirist.
Choose which you want to watch (many are award-winning films), since the series is virtual. Click here for details on how to watch this weekend.
DANCERS SOAR AND LEAP DURING DANIEL LEWIS DANCE SAMPLER
The Daniel Lewis Dance Sampler is an anticipated annual event for the dance community.
It will be presented this year, albeit virtually, with the same energy and vivaciousness as if in person. As is the norm, 10 groups will participate in the virtual event.
The Sampler will feature a combination of newly created pieces and past recorded performances, including a flamenco interpretation of an Ibsen play, a dance video shot among the Florida mangroves, and several quarantine-inspired works.
Click here for details on the groups, buying tickets and how to watch. All this for just $10 is a pretty good deal!
