Tigertail’s FLA-FRA (Florida-France Festival) takes off on the first of April and runs for the entire month. A community-wide fête of concerts, films and pop-up Culture Clicks happening throughout Miami at theaters and unexpected locations, FLA-FRA embraces the French spirit of joie de vivre. This is the 2nd year of Tigertail's venture into new work from France and beyond.
Beginning on April 1 and continuing each and every each morning in April, 2015, a FLA-FRA event we call Sunrise is happening, right on the beach. Each of these five-minute events represent a a silent tribute to a musician, philosopher, painter, dancer, composer, writer, poet from a French speaking country. Each day, a different person is filmed at the beach during sunrise while contemplating this figure of their choice. The five-minute video is uploaded here to YouTube daily. Each event occurs in one of two spots on the beach: at the Haulover Beach Dog Park, 10800 Collins Avenue, or at Pier Park, 101 South Pointe Drive just south of Nikki Beach.
