Benedicte Blanc FontenilleCoconut Grove, Miami, FL. (April 24, 2017) – KROMA Art Space and Studios continues to support residents artists with a monthly spotlight featuring Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at 3670 Grand Avenue, Miami, Fl 33137. The evening reception opens at 6:30pm with performances starting at 7:30pm. Admission is free.

“From Moi to You”, the spotlight performance with Bénédicte and Oscar Fuentes aka The Biscayne Poet, is an expression of love and hope throughout the 19 and 21st century. Let yourself be transported by the rhythm of letters send by Juliette Drouet to her lover, Victor Hugo, read by Bénédicte juxtaposed over the contemporary travails of modern love as expressed by Oscar Fuentes.

Jealousy, passion, doubt, complicity, worship, sadness, all the emotions contained in the word love resounds in this bilinguale performance. The expression of love does not know the barriers of language or time.
