SISTER CITIES Arts Performances

Forging Ties and Enriching Cultural Exchange

At a time when the rest of the nation was focused inward, the city of Coral Gables chose to implement George Merrick’s vision of the City Beautiful as an international destination. The vision, which has blossomed over the decades, required a long-term commitment from its residents and community officials. A major factor contributing to Coral Gables’ status as a thriving, multi-cultural community is its Sister Cities Initiative. But what is Sister Cities? “It’s an international organization, that in 1954, President Eisenhower began. It has created bridges for international collaboration and allowed city to city diplomacy to occur around the world,” explained Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason, about the half century old program. In 1957, the first Sister City was created with Cartagena, Colombia. The program aims

to further establish international ties around the world. Currently, there are four cities—Aix-en-Provence, France, Cartagena, Colombia, Granada, Spain, and La Antigua, Guatemala—that are Sister Cities to Coral Gables. There are also two emeritus class cities- the Province of Pisa, Italy, and Quito, Ecuador. In addition to political exchange, a key objective of the program is to facilitate a cultural exchange for residents of Sister Cities. Mayor Cason, a career foreign service officer, hopes to deploy his expertise to further Merrick’s vision and increase relations with current and prospective Sister Cities. “I know we can learn from other countries, and I like to bring that knowledge home. We—here in America—like to think we are the center of the world, but sometimes America doesn’t always exercise best practices,” stated Mayor Cason. It is through this political and Continued on page 7

lending a unique combination of art, drama, music and poetry, composer Byron Au Yong and Hip Hop poet and playwright Aaron Jafferis created Trigger, “a powerful project that has become a catalyst for discourse, expression and action around the issue of gun violence and how it effects communities in Miami,” described Kathryn Garcia, Executive Director at MDC Live Arts. Building up to the April 21st performance of Trigger will be multidisciplinary workshops and related events taking place across multiple Miami Dade College campuses to connect the show with students, faculty and the public with the aim of gathering different perspectives and extending conversations. “It has been an amazing process

bringing together MDC students, faculty and community members with our invited artists around this issue,” said Garcia. Au Yong and Jafferis explained that the creation of Trigger arose from the April 20 07 r a mpage at Vi rg i n ia Tech. “I am Asian as was the

shooter at Virginia Tech,” said Au Yong. “Asian Americans rarely receive any media attention, and there was a blitz following the tragedy. I had a lot of anger and found myself having to reconcile my feelings not only about this incident and those that Continued on page 17

Miami Crooner Jeff Grainger Keeps Sinatra Spirit Swinging By: Liz Kobak Liz@INYBN.com

Jeff Grainger

When reflecting on the history of jazz music, there’s always one singer who comes to mind as someone who popularized it: Frank Sinatra. Since his passing nearly 20 years ago, many vocalists worldwide have taken a stab at imitating the late great, including his son Frank Sinatra Jr. and countless others. And as far as impersonators on the local South Florida scene

are concerned, local resident Jeff Grainger has stepped up his Sinatra game for 15 years and counting. While in college, one of Jeff’s friends offered him a Sinatra album, which he would sing along to in the shower. Since imitating singers and celebrities had always been his strong suit outsides of academia, Grainger immediately drew a liking to Sinatra. Before he knew it, he transitioned from wedding guest Continued on page 10

Julieta, o El Silencio Que Une y Separa El más reciente film del laureado director Pedro Almodóvar, y que representará a España en los Oscar 2017, reúne buenas actuaciones con una historia contada en tres tiempos. Con sus fotogramas perfectos enseña que estar al lado de una persona, aunque ésta sea una hija, no hace que se le conozca. Con humor imperceptible y ninguna lágrima, esta cinta trae también ese sello que lo hace tan único. — MINÍN ARÉVALO-PARODI Sony Pictures Classics

Cuando crees saberlo todo

Sony Pictures Classics

Hablar de Pedro Almodóvar es hacerlo de palabras mayores. Y cómo no si estamos ante su film número 20 en donde la mayoría de ellos, por una causa o por la otra, ha quedado marcado en la vida y memoria de quienes siguen su trayectoria cinematográfica. Este director nacido en Calzada de Calatrava en España, el 1949, ha logrado con esta “peli” mostrar su madurez narrativa, pues ya no recurre al llanto desencarnado para convertir su historia en mar de lágrimas, sino que lo hace a través de lo que él mismo define como un “drama seco”. Apenas un leve temblor de ojos, pero una carga increíble contada con una letra que más bien parece de un niño de primaria y no de una actriz de la talla de Emma Suárez, Julieta descubre una realidad implacable: no importa cuán cerca se está de una persona, incluso si esa persona es un hijo, ese hecho no implica que lo conozcamos a fondo o sepamos en realidad quién es, qué prefiere, qué oculta detrás de sus silencios o por qué se va, casi para no volver. Y Silencio, justo era el título original de este film, pero el director prefirió llamarla con el nombre de su protagonista, figura que se divide en dos, pues son Adriana Ugarte, con una actuación impecable, como siempre, quien junto a la mencionada Emma Suárez, crecida como intérprete y con una solvencia actoral de primera línea, se encargan de contar, en tres décadas diferentes –que van desde 1985 hasta 2015- la vida de una mujer corriente, si se mira como a cualquier profesora de literatura clásica que se enamora, se casa y tiene una hija; que enviuda y que comienza de nuevo.

Julieta es una historia que tampoco puede catalogarse netamente de triste, porque tiene momentos muy felices. Es, a fin de cuentas, la narración del egoísmo, ensimismamiento o de la poca importancia que una mujer le da al hecho de conocer, o no, a su propia hija. Se centra en ella, en lo que quiere, lo que busca y lo que sufre a causa de su destino, dejando de lado la parte que vive Antía, que no solo es importantísima dentro de la trama, sino que da pie a una carta en forma de cuento escrito en un cuaderno, que desenmaraña la trama. Es una historia sobre la maternidad, el amor y los errores, y dónde lo que no se dice es, definitivamente, lo más importante. Julieta de 55 años se presenta como la mujer de un escritor de arte. Es aplomada, guapa y madura. Pero una esquina de Madrid cambiará su vida. Allí, en un semáforo, se encuentra a la amiga de su hija, quien cambiará con una frase, toda

Sony Pictures Classics

la historia, tanto de la película, como de la vida de su protagonista. Allí comienza el drama. Todo se desbarata y todo empieza. Es el relato que Julieta le escribe a Antía, una hija a quien tiene 12 años sin ver ni saber de ella. Elíptica y con un ritmo agradable, es tal vez un film un poco más lento que otros suyos, si se compara con “Volver”, por ejemplo, pero cada personaje es perfectamente perfilado y va dando la información precisa, con soltura y solidez, para que el espectador construya la historia y tome partido sobre la situación que presenta. No es una película redonda, tampoco la mejor de Pedro Al-

Sony Pictures Classics

modóvar, pero es, sin duda, una vuelta suya que lo reconcilia con la mayoría de sus seguidores, porque la calidad de dirección actoral de la que hace gala la cinta, es realmente impecable. Aunque toda la historia gira entorno a Adriana Ugarte –con una seria de pelucas que van marcando la década y el tiempo- y Emma Suárez en sus papeles de Julieta joven y madura respec-

Sony Pictures Classics

tivamente, Almodóvar se rodea de un excelente grupo de otras actrices que, a pesar de lo pequeño de sus roles, consiguen fascinar al espectador con sus desempeños en la cinta. Tales son los casos de Rossy de Palma, Inma Cuesta, Nathalie Poza, Susi Sánchez, Michelle Jenner y Pilar Castro. El componente masculino, con interés en la trama, pero en franco segundo plano, queda en manos de los dos hombres en la vida de Julieta: Daniel Grao y Darío Grandinetti. Puestas en escena que parecen cuadros pintados, su inseparable gusto por lo vintage, el rojo como color que lo define, un tema musical que se queda la mente y el papel tapiz rococó de las paredes, hacen de Julieta, junto a las actuaciones, el montaje y el guión, que Pedro Almodóvar siga ocupando su sitio en el universo de los buenos directores.

cultural exchange that information and experience are shared. Being able to mutually benefit from that collaborative interaction requires a very important element: people. “So much of what we do is dependent upon the residents and community. When a board member seat becomes available, it is open to the public. Not only are members selected from the public, but we try to base our Sister Cities selections from interest of Gables residents,” commented Mayor Cason. Though community involvement is vital to the procedure, becoming a Sister City with Coral Gables is a time-consuming process. “We have an international affairs advisory committee, which is made up of appointed members. When they meet, the Commissioner and rest of the board decide if there is a vacancy in the program.” From that point, they would then pick a new city based on knowledge gathered from members of the board. Typically, each member brings personal knowledge of a region, which in turn would be utilized by the board. This knowledge—along with interest from the potential city—would be the first steps in developing the relationship that could blossom into something more. This would be the staging

area of the greater experience of Sister Cities. “Once a Sister City has been established, there is a wealth of exchange that takes place. At the end of March, we had a Guatemalan booth set up at our farmer’s market promoting their culture,” noted Mayor Cason. It is events such as these

that play an important role in the development of Sister Cities. There are also moments when Coral Gables is able to showcase and provide vital services to other cultures. Gables emergency services—fire department, police force, and paramedics—are some of the most distinguished in the nation. These departments have

The concept of Sister Cities embodies the exchange of culture, ideas, and resources for the betterment of all involved. Strengthening these bonds will enrich both communities and bolster understanding among peoples. “The City Beautiful was, and still is, designed to be a gateway to the world. Before the rest of the country, Merrick had a plan of an outwardlooking city. He had a different vision. We’ve been able to use what the world offers us. That’s why you see our city today with such a rich international flavor.” For more information on Sister Cities or get involved, visit http://coralgables.com/ index.aspx?page=330.

been able to help train and share many of their practices with Sister Cities to enhance their communities. The City of Coral Gables was awarded the 2016 Sister Cities Humanitarian Assistance Award for cities with a population of less than 100,000 for the exchange between the City and La Antigua,

Guatemala pertaining to a fire truck donation. “We were able to assist in the development of crucial emergency forces overseas. We’ve even been able to provide equipment to areas in extreme need. Guatemala was gifted two firetrucks through Sister Cities,” boasted Mayor Cason.

Guests dressed in their “Red Carpet” finest ball gowns and tuxes, mingled with a Marilyn Monroe impersonator during the cocktail hour, then moved into a sumptuously decorated ballroom for dinner and dancing. UPS and Royal Caribbean/Celebrity Cruises were honored with the 2017 Beacon Award which is given to individuals and organizations that for their outstanding contributions towards bettering the lives of children in Broward County. The highlight of the evening was an appeal to “Bridge the Gap” by refurbishing the apartments in Brown’s Harbor, a collaboration between Children’s Harbor, and the Selfless Love Foundation established by Ashley and Ed Brown, to take over the operation of a campus for youth

aging out of the foster care system. This new project is a supportive housing program for 18-23 year olds which includes twenty 2-bedroom apartments, a community center as well as on-site support and guidance. “A hugely successful appeal to make these apartments a place that inspires and encourages our youth to dream big and reach their goals, exceeded our wildest expectations,” said Children’s Harbor President and CEO Dr. Elizabeth Wynter. “Thanks to generous supporters and a match by Ed and Ashley Brown, we raised enough funds to renovate three units.” “Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and supporters, we are able to make a significant difference in the lives of children and youth who we serve everyday. So many who come from homes filled with abuse and neglect need healing,” said Board Chair Sherry Stein. “We want to thank everyone who has helped Children’s Harbor become a place where siblings in foster care grow up together, where they feel safe and loved and where they know they matter,” Visit Childrensharbor.org to learn more.

Miami Crooner Jeff Grainger Keeps Sinatra Spirit Swinging Continued from page 1

to impromptu wedding singer at his friends’ events. Since relocating to Miami in 1998 from Chicago, Grainger first started to perform at an Italian restaurant on Key Biscayne. “I noticed they were playing mostly Frank and Dean; so, I told the owner that I can perform that music if they were ever looking to have live music there. He said ‘let’s try it out’, and it just kind of snowballed from there,” said Grainger of his first breakthrough gig. As word got out, he started to perform at other restaurants, charity events, corporate events, parties and weddings including annual fundraisers organized by the South Florida chapters of Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Then, when Carmine’s in Kendall opened in 2012, he sang there every Friday and Saturday night. As much as Jeff loves singing the music of his musical idol, it doesn’t fully support the lifestyle he wishes to maintain. Like many artists, he has a day job that supple-

a nd open i ng up for Dea n Mar tin’s daughter, Deana, at her concert in Boca Raton last month. For Grainger, performing revolves around his enjoyment and ability to make a little extra rather than the prospect of getting recognized for his work. “I like to think of myself as a Michael Buble who sounds a bit more like Sinatra,” observes Grainger, underlining that it’s mainly for leisure only. “If I get discovered, that’s great. But at this point, I’m just having fun with it.” When asked why Miamians should celebrate Sinatra’s music in today’s world, Grainger points out that the younger generations of music lovers can still relate to the velvety sounds of generations before them. “Music today is so much different,” remarks Grainger. “I used to wonder if a younger crowd would like what I do.” But the youthful crowds at some of his recent concerts have put to rest any doubts he may have had before. In addition to his striking musical resemblance to Ol’ Blue Eyes,

ments his income for his family. In his “regular” job, Jeff is a marketing manager; come weekends, he becomes “The Miami Crooner”, the Frank Sinatra impersonator backed by the “Hoboken 11” band. “To me, when I perfor m, my goal is to try to sound as much as I can like Sinatra or Dean Martin or whoever I am trying to perform like,” notes Grainger. “I get a kick out of it when I see faces in the audience and they say ‘is this guy really singing this, or is this a CD?’” That’s often the remark by patrons who dine at Amici’s, a Kendall restaurant where he has been per- Liz Kobak forming for a couple Liz Kobak is a freelance writer with bases in New years.

Jeff is on the younger side and has a big band backing him up unlike most other live Sinatra-style performers in South Florida. “The younger crowd seemed to love it,” says Grainger of his most recent performances in front of a younger audience at a Jack Daniel’s event. “And it reassured me that people still appreciate good music.”

“What separates my band is that they’re a younger band,” adds Grainger. “They add a little extra Latin flare to it since most members originate from the Havana symphony orchestra. I’m also bit younger than a lot of the other Sinatra tribute people I have run into.” Looking ahead at additional Sinatra performances, Jeff says he’s stacked with spring

gigs on Saturdays at Amici’s, corporate and private events and festivals.

More Than Meets The Eye at Frost Science Museum Special Exhibition — SEEING: WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT — from Science Gallery Dublin Through October 20, 2017

The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is proud to announce its first special exhibition, SEEING: WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?, supported by Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, part of the University of Miami Health System. SEEING will make its debut on May 8, 2017 when the museum opens to the public and will be on view in the West Wing through October 20, 2017. Making its United States debut after its premiere at Science Gallery Dublin in Ireland, SEEING questions how eyes, brains and robots see, while tackling the

complex sensory experience of vision, understanding and perception. Is vision just one way to see? How do our brains interpret what’s in front of our eyes? How do machines understand what they’re looking at, and will they change how we look at the world? Developed by the Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin and curated by ophthalmologist Kate Coleman, computer engineer Gerry Lacey, neurobiologist Semir Zeki and Science Gallery Dublin Director Lynn Scarff, SEEING investigates biological and technological sight with interactive artworks examining the limits of machine recognition and the latest innovations in sight enhancement. Optics, perspective and comprehension are illuminated while augmented ways of seeing, artificial eyes and radical alternatives are also explored. The exhibition examines the subjectivity of sight, the other senses that shape our view of the world, and the unexpected parallels between hu-

man and machine vision. “SEEING is an exciting addition to Frost Science’s exhibition offerings as it merges the fields of science and art in an unprecedented way, showcasing the cutting-edge science of perception through the lens of 21 talented international scientists, innovators and artists,” said Alexandra Kuechenberg, Frost Science Creative Director. “This exhibition will be hugely impactful for Miami in exposing the community to current research and technology in a uniquely creative way.” Wondering what else to expect at SEEING? Here are some highlights: • Sight Without Light — This interactive exhibit will allow guests to try out one form of echolocation and learn how the same part of your brain — the visual cortex — is used to picture surroundings with sounds as people with sight do with their eyes.

rom the onset, Jafferis and Au Yong wanted Trigger to be more than the stereotypical one-show performance. It was designed to initiate dialogue and connect people but also to serve as a multidisciplinary exploration at colleges and universities throughout the country.

Recently, st udent s a nd facu lt y throughout Miami-Dade College joined forces by deploying their skills and talents in preparation for “Trigger”:

Poems authored by students in a creative writing class were shared with playwriting students – for scripting and staging, to produce a short play performed by acting students alongside specific poetry selections that were read aloud by the poets. The large mural was projected again at Black Box — the Lehman Theatre on the North Dade Campus of Miami-Dade College. • Tuesday, April 18th: The MDC School of Justice will host a panel discussion with faculty, elected officials and law enforcement personnel to talk about strategies for reducing gun violence in our neighborhoods.

n Friday, April 21st, a free performance of social action oratorio Trigger will be presented in two acts. In Act One, a local cast comprised primarily of MDC students will perform the large-scale musical alongside their own original

work in response to the theme “gun violence”. In Act Two, the audience becomes part of the show by participating in a town hall segment where they will be invited to think about gun violence and its consequences: belonging and isolation, forgiveness and justice, freedom and safety. They will be asked to assume the role of active negotiators by joining a conversation about advocacy or learn more about organizations dedicated to eradicating gun violence. TRIGGER will be presented at 7pm at the Lehman Theatre, MDC North Campus, and 11380 NW 27th Ave, Building 5 Miami, FL Following the MDC Live Arts performance, Trigger will be introduced in New Haven, Connecticut this June and the in San Francisco in 2018.

INDIVIDUAL ENERGY HEALING SESSIONS WITH PAULA PETRY, PHD Dr. Paula Petry, PhD combines her life experiences with her formal training in energy medicine, education, psychology, and the healing arts to help individuals optimizes their health and well-being. She offers individual energy medicine sessions and workshops, as well as individual somatic therapy & coaching lessons to reduce stress, depression, anxiety and internal conflicts. In an initial energy medicine session, Dr. Petry first completes a standard intake process with you. This flows into a conversation about your expectations for the session(s) and in general what motivated you to seek assistance. Dr. Petry explains the general process, and you are given the opportunity to ask questions. Dr. Petry then begins an informal chat to help you identify the underlying emotional triggers that are diminishing your level of joyfulness and satisfaction with life. Early memories are identified that are connected to the emotional triggers. As your memories are activated, you identify where that emotion lives in the body, where you feel it, e.g., heart, stomach, head. If you have a generalized anxiety, you may feel it everywhere. The purpose of this process is to create an awareness of the emotional/ behavioral pattern and to activate the negative/heavy energy in the body so it can be released through the healing process. NOTE: During non-local healings which are conducted over the phone or Skype, you can be lying down or sitting in a chair, while Dr. Petry, applying the principles of quantum physics, clears your biofield. You will then lie in a supine position on a massage table and further relax by visualizing a healing energy entering your body with each breath. Dr. Petry calls upon her and your spirit guides. She begins to enter non-ordinary time which facilitates her ability to ‘see’ your biofield and remove non-beneficial energies. Through the power of intention and spiritual assistance, heavy energies are lifted from the body through the chakra portals. This part of the session can take from 20 to 60 minutes. Rhythmic sounds and scents help in the process. Generally speaking, anyone can benefit from energy medicine sessions. There Sessions are 1.5 to 2 hours in length. is no typical client.

The 2016-17 Bailey Hall Chamber Series curated by Dr. Jure Rozman comes to a commanding close with an evening of four-hand piano performed by Gustavo Romero and Massimo Somenzi on Thursday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. The acclaimed pianists will perform a program of Franz Schubert featuring: “Grande Marche Funèbre, D. 859;” “Divertissement à la Hongroise in G Minor, D. 847;” “Rondo in A Major, D. 951;” “Variations in A Flat Major, D. 813;” “Allegro in A Minor, D. 947 (Storms of Life);” and “Marche Funèbre, D. 859.” Called “a pianist of genius” by The Washington Post, Romero is internationally renowned for his exceptional technical brilliance and interpretive depth. He has performed in some of the leading concert halls of the world, including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Barbican in London, The Berlin Philharmonie, Teatro La Fenice in Venice, The Great Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow and Salle Gaveau in Paris. Romero’s many awards include first prize in the prestigious Clara Haskil International Piano Competition in Switzerland, The Avery Fisher Career Grant and The Musical America Young Artist Award. Somenzi’s extensive concert activity

includes not only appearances as a soloist but also with orchestras and chamber music ensembles. He has recorded the complete piano works for four hands of Dvorak as well as Brahms with recording partner Emanuela Bellio. A native of Venice, he has won many first place competition prizes in Italy including: the National Piano Competitions at Osimo (1969 and 1976); at La Spezia (1970 and 1974); at Pescara (1978); at Cesena (1978); the National Cilea Chamber Ensemble Competition at Palmi (1984), the International City of Trapani Chamber Music Competition (1984); and being unanimously awarded first prize with special honors at the City of Vittorio Veneto Special Competition for Piano Duo (1985). “These two dynamic performers bring the series this season to a rousing close and it is not one to miss,” said Dr. Dan Barnard, associate dean of cultural affairs and director of Bailey Hall. Tickets are available for $8-$15 and can be purchased by visiting www.baileyhall. org or contacting the Bailey Hall box office at (954) 201-6884. The box office and phone lines are open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and one hour prior to an event.


One of the most successful Latin music vocalists in the world, Gilberto Santa Rosa comes to the Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts for one night only on Thursday, April 20 at 8 p.m. The concert is generously underwritten by IBERIABANK. Affectionately known as the “El Caballero de la Salsa,” Santa Rosa will bring his tantalizing Latin flavors to the stage with salsa and bolero top hits such as “Que Alguien Me Diga” and “Por Más Que Intento.” Named Billboard’s Tropical Artist of the Decade for 2000-2009, he has consistently entertained crowds with his energetic personality, vocal improvisational skills and refreshing sense of humor. Santa Rosa has won six Latin Grammy Awards in several categories including Best Salsa Album, Best Traditional Tropical Album and, most recently, Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. With 14 No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Tropical Airplay chart and a dozen No. 1 best sellers on Billboard’s Tropical Albums Chart, his recordings have been certified gold (13), platinum (13) and multi-platinum (four). Other honors include receiving the ASCAP Latin Heritage Award. The New York Times notes, “Mr. San-

ta Rosa’s music embraces pop melody without leaving its dance roots behind.” Tickets are $45-$150 with $125 LATAM AIRLINES CLUB LEVEL tickets. Buy tickets online at BrowardCenter. org or Ticketmaster.com; by phone at 954-462-0222; in person at Ticketmaster outlets or the Broward Center’s AutoNation Box Office.
