Event description

Description

Just as the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Norse had their gods, villains, and heroes, Miami now has a legendary saga based on the hyperbolic surrealism that is living in South Florida. Join us for an interactive, communal storytelling event where you’ll be introduced to a wholly unique universe with its own, often absurd, deities and norms—much like the city from which it’s inspired.

Based on the forthcoming book by Bobby D. Foster, you’ll journey from the beginning of the universe, when Pachango the Creator first awoke on his divine pin pan pun, to when the cubanos and their fellow Latinics quite literally tumbled out of the waves and onto Miami’s shores. Along the way, you’ll learn answers to deep existential questions, such as: Where do croquetas come from? Who is the god of chisme? And why is everyone late to everything?

Bobby D. Foster will narrate, while Danny Mendoza films the whole spectacle. We hope to see you then.

P.S. If that’s not enough of a draw, there will also be pastelitos and refreshments.
