The fabled Red Barn at Phil’s Berry Farm in Redland plays host to an evening of debate, poetry, dance, music, and theatre with a two-part tribute to the work and philosophy of Miami Dade County’s first Artist-in-Residence Xavier Cortada.
Part I: Forum: ethics, advocacy-art, and practice exploring the value and purpose of art in a constantly evolving digital age. Featuring celebrated choreographer, Dale Andree the debate will be moderated by freelance writer and designer, Bianca Sproul. Part II Performance: an immersive journey through the life of Artist X as actors channel the spirit and philosophy of advocate-artist Xavier Cortada whose work intersects art, environmental science, and social justice Cortada’s work hangs adorns countless buildings including the White House, CERN, and the World Bank. Conceived and directed by Phillip M Church, this production promises to take its audience beyond the conversation demonstrating the beauty and power of art while underscoring the urgency for collective action as a way of finding meaningful solutions.

Goodnight Moon - film
Goodnight Moon by Margret Wise Brown is synonymous with children’s literature. Since its publication in 1947, Goodnight Moon has introduced young children to the wonders of reading for decades. As of 2007, the book sells about 800,000 copies annually and by 2017 had cumulatively sold an estimated 48 million copies. This short film is a live-action dramatic curation of the original story. While presenting unique visual elements and an adapted narrative to the book, this film keeps faithful to the words written over 60 years ago.
Summer Showings TBA
