Wally Cardona, a Brooklyn-based choreographer, and Jennifer Lacey, a Paris-based American dance artist, bring their Tool is Loot collaboration to Miami on Saturday, Jan. 21.

The work, presented by Tigertail Productions, began as solos Cardona and Lacy created over a year’s time, an ocean apart, with contributions from an astrophysicist, a sommelier, an architect, an opera singer and others.

An award-winning choreographer who probes concepts of performance, reality and the creative process, Cardona has had his work presented at the BAM/Next Wave Festival and Dance Umbrella/London. Lacey’s collaborations with visual artist Nadia Lauro have been commissioned by major European dance festivals.

The pair will also present a workshop called Delightful Disorientation at 6 p.m. Thursday followed by an 8 p.m. panel discussion at Inkub8, 2021 NW First Pl., as part of a Tigertail series to foster dance innovation funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s KnightArts Challenge program. Both are free.

Tool is Loot will be performed at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21 at the Colony Theater, 1040 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach. Tickets are $30 ($20 students and seniors); www.tigertail.org or 305-324-4337. Artist tickets are available for $20 at the box office only.
