JUGGERKNOT THEATRE COMPANY’S MIAMI MOTEL STORIES IN LITTLE HAVANA ANNOUNCES TICKETS AVAILABLE TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
Awarded Knight Arts Grant, Juggerknot Theatre Company’s latest project merges urban development and Miami history. Sponsored by Chivas Regal.
Miami Motel Stories is a real-time immersive theatre experience that takes place inside one of Little Havana’s most beautiful and iconic building this October– the Tower Hotel. Built in 1920, this newly-restored boutique hotel has nearly a century of deep-rooted history in the neighborhood, and JuggerknotTheatre Company is telling those stories, inviting guests on a journey of Miami’s past, present, and future one room at a time. Tickets for Miami Motel Stories go on sale Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
Three ticket types unlock different experiences at the Tower Hotel. The first floor allows guests to come and go as they wish through 12 hotel rooms. They will meet and mingle with characters from the neighborhood, and get to the heart of Little Havana in an experience through decades of its music, culture, history, and crime. The second floor is designed to be an intimate experience; guests will enter these rooms, two at a time, for a close-up look at the people who lived or stayed in the hotel through time, including jazz icon Billie Holiday, who was a frequent visitor in the 50s.
Three storyline tracks are available, and guests can book their stay by choosing a Blue, Pink, or Yellow key. If they enjoyed their first visit and would like another, different experience, they can come back and purchase a different color key for a different story track. The result will be an interactive theatre experience that will have audiences navigating through Miami’s rich, multi-layered narrative. Migration, gentrification, segregation, love, and family feuds – audiences will filter through and watch, as they glide from one room to the next (led by actors), until a picture of the city comes into focus.
