Adrienne Arsht Center Virtual Upcoming Events: Short Plays, Jazz, Dance, Visual Arts & More

Adrienne Arsht Center is presenting a series of online special performances from Eddie Palmieri, Richie Hell and Elastic Bond and more. Check out some of our favorite events and be sure to save the following dates!


On Wednesday, Sept. 9, the Adrienne Arsht Center and Oolite Arts will present an online conversation with and performance by jazz pianist Eddie Palmieri. Part of the series Art Sounds: Improv, the evening will find Palmieri discussing visual artists who have inspired him with his daughter Gabriela Palmieri, an art consultant and former executive with the Sotheby’s auction house. A live performance will follow. Watch the event beginning at 6 p.m. on the Arsht Center’s Facebook page.


Earlier this summer, The Rhythm Foundation streamed a concert by Miami-based world-music artist Richie Hell live from the North Beach Bandshell. Hell performed songs from his album, The Gumbo Limbo Experiment, released last month by Miami’s Sweat Records Records. Watch a recording of the concert here.

Also, with Miami students returning to school this week (sort of), we wanted to revisit Bed and Roses, playwright France-Luce Benson’s short play about homeless children. Commissioned by City Theatre, the play first appeared on the company’s Short Cuts School Tour. Watch it here.


Choreographer Terrence “TM” Pride is back with another lesson in musical-theater movement. A dancer with Peter London Global Dance Company, an Arsht Center Arts Partner, Pride has choreographed more than 60 shows. Watch his latest video here.


This week, we’re offering an encore presentation of Elastic Bond’s “In a Perfect World,” which the “psychedelic tropical soul” duo filmed on a Miami rooftop. Click here to let Sofy Encanto and Andrés Ponce take you higher.


Robert Rahway Zakanitch was a founder of the art movement known as Pattern and Decoration, which championed sentimentality, romance and humanity. The works he created for the Arsht Center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House and Knight Concert Hall possess all those qualities. Part of the Arsht Center’s Art in Public Places program, Zakanitch’s “Hibiscus Grand Curtain” and “Green Lace Scrim” were inspired by the forms and colors of South Florida’s landscape. Peek behind the curtains here.


The Adrienne Arsht Center invites you to celebrate the amazing work of 30 Miami artists selected and commissioned by the Center as part of its Heart of Art virtual program. Working with the theme “Art in the Time of Coronavirus,” artists are sharing their responses to the pandemic. Finished works will appear on the Arsht Center’s Facebook page. Click here for more on the program and for information on how to apply.


The arts industry is mobilizing to support artists of all disciplines in this time of need. For a list of emergency grants and other assistance to artists affected by the pandemic, please go here.


During these times, the Arsht Center is still dedicated to enhancing the lives of people from all walks of life through the power of live performing arts.

We rely on the generous support of foundations, corporations and individuals like you to sustain the transformational work we do on our stages and in the community.
