Charo Oquet’s “Miami Rara” is a unique work that integrates installation with music, dance and costuming.  It presents performance art as situated within, and in dialog with, the neighborhood it is located within. Taking its form from the Dominican/Haitian Gaga/Rara carnival tradition, which has common heritage with Afro-Cuban and African American carnival traditions, “Miami Rara” particularly serves as a meeting place for audience to interact with Miami’s pan-Caribbean heritage and communities.
