Miami Motel Stories™

As the city expands, and the skyline begins to beat its path higher and farther, Juggerknot wants to ride the same upward trajectory. Miami Motel Stories™ is an, real-time immersive theatre experience that takes place in developing neighborhoods, inside selected buildings. Here, writers will work, alongside developers, to tell the story of Miami’s past, present, and future, one room at a time. The work will reflect the undercurrent of history, both real and imagined, bringing artistry, responsible growth, and home-grown craft to Miami’s ever-quickening rush to develop.

Miami Motel Stories™ is funded in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge
