The 7th Edition of “Miami Performance Festival International ’18”  (M/P ’18)  will take place from June 22-23, 2018.   M/P ’18  will be staged at Edge Zones space in Allapattah Miami and at Lummus Park, South Beach with  different countries represented and a host of local talent .  The festival will show a variety of works and will encourage viewers to investigate performance art, spoken word poetry and Noise artistic influence and contributions to our visual and sound culture and will provide the viewer with a unique performance and sound experience beyond the realm of traditional art. A 2-days long interdisciplinary complex multileveled platform which will include videos of performances, live performances, noise, experimental sound art audience participation, publications, artist talks and visual art exhibitions, demonstrates the commitment by Edge Zones to the professional development of South Florida artists in national and international forum.


M/P ’18 is a stage for both young and emerging artists, curators, critics, and scholars to present their latest work. This world-class performing arts festival will provide the opportunity for our live audience of approximately 6,000 to engage deeply with the ideas emerging from these provocative works.


Miami Performance International Festival (M/P’18) seeks to continue to expand and provide a platform for South Florida-based performance and sound artists to create new work in Miami. This “challenge”, also bringing professionals together for the sake of a common goal: pushing the boundaries of their practice and making that same work accessible to a wider audience.
