Coconut Grove Townhouse – A Walker’s Dream

Townhomes are the hottest properties in Coconut Grove.  I just listed a walker’s dream on spectacular Gifford Lane,  just a short walk to the center of town. No need to drive around looking for parking when shopping, dining, tennis, parks and recreation can be reached on foot. This lovely Coconut Grove townhouse, build in 2005, has an open floor plan with living and dining […]

A haunting feast for the eyes, ears and soul…this show is not to be missed.  It’s not exactly the Dead, as in Grateful.  Rather it’s the spirits of fictional characters from historic Coconut Grove who come to life in dance as they jete and pirouette across The Barnacle Historic State Park.

Performance Art Incites Love and Hate

 I attended a Nadia Beugre dance performance this past weekend on Stage Black Box at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium. Nadia, choreographer and dancer, performed Quartiers Libres, a French expression meaning “free territory” or “limitless space”.  It was strange and unfamiliar, confusing and angry and expressive, wild and intense.  Everything about the performance screamed freedom from oppression, from the tangled microphone cable strangling […]
