Mixtape 2

Mad Cat Theatre Company is pleased to present a collection of new works by various local artists and familiar faces entitled MIXTAPE 2: UMMAGUMMA FORZA ZUMA!  In 2008, Mad Cat released its first MIXTAPE featuring a mix of new plays and films steeped in nostalgia. Now, six years later, Mad Cat is back with a new mix of plays and films, MIXTAPE 2: UMMAGUMMA FORZA ZUMA! – a theatrical stew that is very much embedded in the present.  MIXTAPE 2: UMMAGUMMA FORZA ZUMA! is about having the right mixture of mojo needed to make it through a metamorphosis. This collection of new works features pieces by Jessica Farr, Elena Maria Garcia, Theo Reyna, Deborah L. Sherman, Andres Solorzano, Paul Tei, and Kristina Wong.  It also features new films by Molly Gandour, George Schiavone & Matt Corey, Karelle Levy & Michael Landsberg, Wet Sock Ensemble (Erik Fabregat, Ralph de la Portilla &Ted Chambers), and Darin Gray of the band “On Fillmore”.

The ensemble features all Mad Cat company members Sofia Citarella, Troy Davidson, Jessica Farr, Joe Kimble, Noah Levine and Erin Joy Schmidt.  The production and design team includes the sound design and original music of Matt Corey, lighting design by Melissa Santiago Keenan, costume design by Karelle Levy, guest direction by Leland Patton, and set design and direction by Mad Cat’s founder Paul Tei.  This production is made possible by the Miami Theater Center, Delaplaine Champagne, WLRN and with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners.
