This October, the curtains will rise on Faena Live’s newest production: Samsara Cabaret.
A seductive Madame narrates the transformative journey of Artemis, a being formed from stardust, as she fights against the dark energy that surrounds her. Transcending her own dimension, the show’s lead protagonist, played by Miami native Bianca Allanic, undergoes a startling phoenix-like metamorphosis right before the audience’s eyes as jaw-dropping illusions, state-of-the-art technology, contemporary dance, cirque nouveau, live music, and decadent dinner fare create an immersive theater experience unlike any other.
The outstanding ensemble also includes singer and “America’s Got Talent” semi-finalist Yoli Mayor, violinist Shane Borth, cellist Ben Muñoz, and Sensatia stars Megan Stockman, EnVee and Samantha Mixan. The incandescent performance, directed by Quixotic’s Anthony Magliano and Christian Squires, is a sensuous meditation on the eternal cycle of creation and transformation, during which guests are siren-called to leave their old selves behind in search for the ever new.
