a world gone FABULOUS


Created and performed by a dynamite ensemble of Miami artists, a world gone FABULOUS is an evening-length dance theater work where grit and glitter, flesh and digital, sweat and velvet, desired fantasies and broken hearts coexist. The audience is invited to wonder forward on a fascinating quest for a better future guided by Adele Myers and Dancers signature style combining robust athleticism, personal theatricality, and wit.
