Some of the best artistic collaborations occur when different worlds collide, when various perspectives meld together unrestricted, allowing the art “flow” to take its course. Mana Contemporary is hoping to do just that by welcoming celebrated choreographer Jonah Bokaer, architect Charles Renfro and visionary design studio Diller Scofdio + Renfro for a very special presentation of Double Helix on Dec. 4. The celebrated duo and world-class venue have partnered to create a performance blurring the lines between dance, architecture, reality and fantasy. A VIP performance will be immediately followed by a preview of various other shows also taking place at Mana’s sprawling Wynwood Campus during Art Week 2018. A true feast for the senses and creative connoisseurs; ManaContemporary.com.
