Diana Lozano is founder and artistic director of Circ X, a traveling performance troupe and production company based in Miami, and a 2013 Knight Arts Challenge winner.
We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for our upcoming cabaret show at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater. We hope to raise $3,000 this month to help match the Knights Arts Challenge grant and to pay rehearsal and performance fees for the artists.
We’re offering general admission tickets in the same price range as a movie ticket, to entice a wider audience to the world of live performance. Through the Kickstarter campaign, backers are able to get tickets without service fees. Basically, for less than the price of two coffees and a muffin at your local corporate coffee shop, you can experience live theater while supporting Miami’s local performance artists.

As we walked through the store, I noticed a waffle maker that was on sale for 10 bucks. I immediately blurted out, “We should make waffles every week for the team. It would be something we could all look forward to and we could do it every Wednesday…”
Carolina jumped in: “Waffle Wednesday! I absolutely love that idea.”
When I mentioned the idea to my co-founder/mad scientist, Alfonso Martinez, he quickly took it one step further (as he usually does with everything) by telling us that he’s going to go “‘Top Chef’ on all of us.”
