Miami Beach OnStage! Presents ‘Reflections on Submerging Geometry’
(Miami Beach, FL) Sep 30, 2021 -
Miami Beach OnStage! proudly presents “Reflections on Submerging Geometry” on Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021 at the Scott Rakow Youth Center swimming pool for two performances. The first-of-the season visual arts production represents a collaboration between O, Miami and professional visual artist and artistic swimmer/choreographer Monica Lopez De Victoria.
“Reflections on Submerging Geometry” is a contemporary experimental work showcasing the poetry of bodies in motion, video production and the athleticism of artistic swimming. With creative direction by lead dancer/choreographer Katie Stirman and lead artistic swimmer/choreographer Sarah Restrepo, artistic swimmers and dancers from Verso perform to music by composer Susie Green. “Reflections on Submerging Geometry” are by poet Monica Uszerowicz. Two limited seating performances will be presented free to the public at 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Attendees must RSVP, are encouraged to wear masks and observe social distancing.
The work investigates the rippling effects of emotional volume and visual illusions through the internal geometry of the heart and mind. Water performers include competitive, artistic swimming athletes, former Cuban national team synchro swimmers, water polo players, dancers, artists and theatrical performers. “Reflections on Submerging Geometry” is a genre-blending hypnosis that invites the audience to expand their perceptions to new realms.
The Scott Rakow Youth Center Pool is located at 2700 Sheridan Ave. in Miami Beach.
