The University of Wynwood welcomes Omni ZonaFranca, a group of cuban poets from the projects of Habana.
On Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 7 p.m. at Sweat Records, OMNI will present their new performance ¡¡¡MÁKINA TOTAL CITY!!! -- a dynamic presentation of poetry, music, and dance. Admission is free. After the performance there will be a short Q & A.
Omni-ZonaFranca is a multi-disciplinary collective from Cuba. OMNI’s work is a unique blend of performance, music, poetry, spoken word, rap, visual art, graffiti, video, and public art. Working together since 1997 they have produced several music/poetry CDs and videos, including the groundbreaking CD Alamar Express. They produce an annual music, art, theater and poetry festival Poesía Sin Fin in Cuba. They have taken part in the Havana Biennial, and international exhibitions and festivals throughout Cuba and Europe. OMNI has been the subject of three documentaries. This is their first tour of the United States.
