“Smoke, Lilies and Jade,” a multimedia performance inspired by the Harlem Renaissance and celebrating Black queerness, will be presented Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. at the Underline Sound Stage Plaza, 800 S.W. 1st Ave. in downtown Miami.

Featuring song, dance, instrumentalists and animation, the multidisciplinary work by Kunya Rowley is inspired by gay Harlem Renaissance author Richard Bruce Nugent’s 1926 short story. Rowley is a 2017 Knight Arts Challenge grant recipient for his performance series, Hued Songs, which explores and celebrates Black history through the lens of Black music and artists.  

The performance is sponsored by Bookleggers Library, the Underline and Hued Songs, as part of the monthlong “O, Miami” poetry festival.
