Free “Under the Electric Tree” performance series at MOCA

Join MOCA North Miami for a series of public activations, “Under the Electric Tree” at Griffing Park, located at NE 123 Street and West Dixie Hwy, North Miami, FL. 

Programming will include site-specific performances, live music, hands-on art activities, and more, in conjunction with the recently restored public artwork “Electric Tree” by international renowned artist, Mark Handforth.

In celebration of Caribbean Heritage Month, MOCA North Miami is proud to feature the Mento Philharmonic Orchestra.

The event is taking place on Saturday, June 11, from 7-9 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Just remember to register for tickets, here!

Mento is a style of Jamaican folk music that predates and has greatly influenced Ska and Reggae music. Mento typically features acoustic instruments, such as acoustic guitar, banjo, hand drums, and the rhumba box (which is a large mbira in the shape of a box that can be sat on while played.) The rhumba box carries the bass part of the music.

Then, on Wednesday, June 29 at 7:00 p.m. Choreographer Pioneer Winter and sound artist Juraj Kojs will collaborate with performers and community members on a Pride Month activation at the Electric Tree. Collected oral histories and elder stories of ‘first prides’ will become an interactive soundscape for dancers to embody themes of memory, resilience, and community – reflecting on the Electric Tree created by artist Mark Handforth as a meeting place for corporeal and social exchange.

A fun and free events for the whole family!
