Description

Miami, FL. For one night only, Art & Design Gallery will present the dramatized reading of the play "Marco Caridad's Room" on April 27th, where Marco Caridad, multidisciplinary artist, will be starring along with Mel Gorham, the Hollywood actress who stared in Wayne Wang's film Smoke and Blue in the Face.

The play was written by the Venezuelan playwright Yonyi Gutiérrez and is inspired by the abstract paintings of artist Marco Caridad that will be part of the exhibition "Sense, have it or not."

The performance will be inside the main room of the artist's exhibition, and the actors will act on top of a 12 foot long by 6 foot wide table. The audience will be around them.

Using the psychology of color, Gutiérrez confronts the characters with the emotional charge of the artist, achieving the conjunction of biographical aspects of Caridad throughout the development of the plot. At the same time, the artist exposes his memories and experiences, and makes the characters "two strangers," to emerge the most sincere of emotions, exposing a relationship tied to the loss.

"They already did it in New York with ROTHKO in the play Red. Now, it is an honor to perform in Miami with my art pieces. What I love about this initiative is that, unlike ROTHKO, I am one of the actors." said artist Marco Caridad.

The work "Marco Caridad’s Room," according to its writer, "is a contemporary piece that expresses the feelings of the protagonists through the artist's paintings. Through dialogue between the characters, important aspects of Marco Caridad's life are narrated originally: his muses and what motivates him to capture the abstracts in the canvas."

The stage director, Oswaldo Rosario, urges the actors to break the fourth wall to connect more with the public, which will not exceed 40 people, which will lead to a more intimate experience.

The music will be played by DJ JayR. "I love that this reading will be like those I'm used to doing in New York... It will be beautiful with the music in the background," added Mel Gorham.


"Marco Caridad’s Room" premiered, in its original version, in 2015 in Venezuela. They performed it in Kendall at Artefactus Project during two weekends in 2016. The audience was moved, even several attendees came out with tears in their eyes.

To enjoy this extraordinary staging experience, people can buy tickets for any contribution they can. The purpose is that the artist can move the exhibition "Sense, have it or not" to other states and bring the play "Marco Caridad's Room" to more cultural spaces in the U.S.
