When you think about Latin theater in Miami, productions tailored to your parents and abuelitos probably come to mind. Yoshvani Medina, the director of Artspoken, wants to change that. Medina has dared to fully invest himself in establishing a performing arts center in the middle of Little Havana, dedicated to bringing the best in Latin theater to life. Artspoken Performing Arts Center is smack dab in the middle of 12th Avenue between Flagler Street and Calle Ocho.
The space was created to bring avant garde and lesser known works to light, as well as offer classes in acting and directing. Medina also wants kids to be exposed to artistic works that would otherwise go completely unnoticed by those of us who call Miami our home. Currently, ArtSpoken is showing Sinfonía en Do Mayor (Y La menor), a play about a mother and daughter fighting for the affections of the daughter's acting coach. Sinfonía is billed as a dark and perverse thriller in which the winner becomes the loser. All works are performed in Spanish without superscripts.
