LA NOCHE I. DELICATISSIMA
Southernmost Situations is proud to present la noche i.delicatissima, an imaginative adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana. Featuring a local cast of characters selected by the play’s directors, Liz Ferrer and Sebastian Duncan Portuondo, la noche i.delicatissima takes the play’s 1940s Mexican setting, moves it to mid-’60s Cuba, and offers it a more dreamlike lens, all while staying true to the original text.
A multidisciplinary endeavor, la noche i.delicatissima features video projections and music by local artists, along with a set that functions as a large-scale installation. True to Southernmost Situations’ mission to make work that defies art’s traditional mechanisms, the play is a combination of both classic and experimental theater, employing the use of light, color, and interactive multimedia to create a near-psychedelic aesthetic. Utilizing a revamped version of the classic Greek chorus to supplement the actions of its main characters, la noche i.delicatissima explores abstract psychology, existentialism, and the painfully human search for purpose and place.
Born out of a spontaneous trip to Key West, Southernmost Situations is a Miami-based social catalyst blurring the boundaries between contemporary art, performance, and the traditional curatorial model, structured as an experimental open collective.
