MTC PRESENTS ARMOUR, A MESMERIZING LOVE STORY BROUGHT TO LIFE THROUGH A UNIQUELY ILLUSORY MULTIMEDIA EXPERIENCE

CREATED AND PERFORMED BY ARTIST, DANCER AND CHOREOGRAPHER LAZARO GODOY

 

 

Miami, FL (December 2016) – Miami Theater Center (MTC) is proud to present Lazaro Godoy’s latest brainchild, ArMOUR – A Love Story from Self to Others.

Together, in a spatial time-frame installation from the depths of Godoy’s fiery imagination, two beings express the most profound of human experiences – love.

Through an imaginative use of food, fragrance, color, and optical illusion – combined with art, photography, live-video, and interpretive body movements – you are taken on a journey of pure emotion.
Godoy says of his work, “In the dimness of the night, she appears. His long-time scars grow heavy, wrapping him in firm root-like branches that restrain him against his will. He breaks free, releasing the wild spirit within him, and exposing the purest bright magic – love. Like a snake sheds its skin, ArMOUR peels away the heavy excess, and the surrender to pure truth, deep within the soul, is illuminated.”

 

ArMOUR premieres on January 27th, 2016 at Miami Theater Center’s SandBox Theater. Show times will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8pm, and the exhibition will run from 2-7:30pm each day. Tickets: General Admission $25 for the live performance, and no fee to view the installation.
