Miami Light Project Launched Here & Now in 1999, as the first program of its kind in South Florida dedicated to commissioning and presenting South Florida-based performance and multi-media artists. Since its inception, we have commissioned work from more than 75 South Florida-based artists, laying the foundation for Miami’s reputation as a cultural center of international importance. Over 30 of those artists have gone on to perform that work in 14 states and 15 countries for an estimated audience of over 20,000 people worldwide.
Here & Now returns for its 20th annual presentation! Here & Now: 2018 will feature newly commissioned work from Miami’s freshest and most exciting emerging artists, who are working across disciplines to define contemporary performance in Miami. This year will feature the work of Kat Hernandez, Diana Lozano, Adele Myers, and Shamar Wayne Watt.
“Miami Light Project’s annual Here & Now Festival consistently offers intriguing new efforts from some of Miami’s best and boldest young artists, with the occasional discovery of exceptional talent (i.e. Teo Castellanos, Rosie Herrera, Natasha Tsakos.)”
