OFRENDA WORKSHOP
Sunday, October 5, 2014
3:00 – 4:00pm
$10 suggested donation (free for Bakehouse Members)

The Day of the Dead celebration at the Bakehouse kicks off with a family-friendly ofrenda-making workshop. These traditional altars of remembrance are perhaps the most sacred part of the Day of the Dead customs. On Sunday October 5th, Adriana Sandoval, a scholar of Day of the Dead traditions, will guide participants in designing their very own altars. Ofrendas by BAC resident artists and community members will also be displayed in unusual settings throughout the Bakehouse.

About Florida Day of the Dead Celebration
In four short years, Florida Day of the Dead (DOTD) Celebration has evolved into a signature cultural event in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.  Founded with a $2000 seed grant in 2010 from Broward County to have a puppeteer build giant skeleton puppets with the community, the Celebration has grown to a month-long, multi-venue, handmade arts movement with hundreds of artists participating and thousands marching in the Skeleton Processional every November 2nd.  In 2013, Corona even named the event “The #1 DOTD Event in the U.S.A,”  Memory for the Dead, Party for the Living.

ROAST OF THE CALACAS - A PUPPET SLAM
Monday, October 27, 2015
8:00 pm
$7 (seating extremely limited)

On the wilder side of the spectrum, Jim Hammond, David Goboff (President of the Puppet Guild of South Florida) and their band of creative hooligans gleefully venture deeper into a world that taps our collective fear of death and other unknowns.  THE ROAST is an over-the-top comedic framing device that sets up each vignette, paying homage to nightmares as envisioned by our cast.  Beyond puppeteers, the roster of slam performance artists includes regional Burning Man creatives, burlesque, Day of the Dead celebrants and Zombie Walk devotees. This strictly adults-only event is funded, in part, by Heather Henson, Puppet Slam Network, Puppet Guild of South Florida and the National Endowment for the Arts.

All Day of the Dead events will take place at the Bakehouse Art Complex at 561 NW 32nd Street, Miami, Fl. For further details, please visit www.Dayofthedeadflorida.com or www.bacfl.org.  For tickets, contact 305-576-2828 or info@bacfl.org.
