Faena Theatre

Known for its magical, moving theatrics and dramatic decor, the Faena Theatre has remained one of Miami’s most coveted destinations for live entertainment. Alan Faena is further enhancing this with his latest show, Sensatia, which is sure to be stunning and utilize all five senses.

Sensatia is an interactive multimedia performance blending movement, sound and technology to stimulate and awaken the senses. Performances will be in Faena Theater in collaboration with Quixotic, a performance collective that combines dance, aerialists, musicians, specialty artists and projection mapping. Sensatia demonstrates Faena’s commitment to bringing singular experiences to Miami Beach.

Sensatia follows the path of an uninspired ballerina and overworked violinist as they are led by a muse into a fantasy cabaret where their magic is rekindled. Merging film, live music, perfumery, and culinary arts, the show is unique to Faena, and takes guests on a journey of inspired discovery, promising a transcendent experience. The performance engages audiences through activating each of the five senses, with the taste concept of the evening developed in collaboration with Chef Paul Qui, who is at the helm of Pao, one of Faena Hotel Miami Beach’s signature restaurants.

From guests of the Faena Hotel to the local community, all are invited to enjoy a this memorable show set in an remarkable backdrop. The 3,000 square-foot, 150-seat Faena Theater provides an unmatched venue to enjoy live performances. Designed by Alan Faena, the intimate setting evokes the grand style of European opera houses, juxtaposing it with the glamour of 1950s Miami. The space is marked by gold-leaf and red velvet decor, a dramatic curtain, and a gorgeous statement chandelier.
