Tigertail to repeat Myriam Gourfink’s ‘Breathing Monster’

Ballerina’s illness forces switch in second FLA-FRA Festival program.

Tigertail’s Saturday presentation of the work of French choreographer Myriam Gourfink has changed due to the illness of ballerina Gwenaëlle Vauthier. As part of the company’s ongoing FLA-FRA Festival, Vauthier was to have performed Gourfink’s Corbeau, along with Marine, at 2 p.m. Saturday at the On.Stage Black Box at Miami-Dade County Auditorium. Now, the Saturday program will be a repeat of Breathing Monster, a piece performed by Gourfink with her musical collaborator Kasper T. Toepliz. Breathing Monster will be presented at 8:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday at the Black Box, 2901 W. Flagler St., Miami.

The 8:30 p.m. Saturday dance program by Cédric Andrieux at the Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach, will go on as scheduled. Tickets to Gourfink’s Breathing Monster are $25 ($50 for VIP seating, $20 for students and seniors). For information, call 305-324-4337 or visit
