While a widespread return to indoor theater won’t happen yet, some companies and venues have figured out creative ways to come back sooner.Hence the presence of the fast-paced improv show, “Zoetic Schmoetic,” on the outdoor Thomson Plaza at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts over the weekend.Zoetic Stage, based in the Arsht’s Carnival Studio Theater since it launched in late 2010, has built its reputation on impeccably intimate productions of Stephen Sondheim musicals, challenging dramatic fare such as “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” and world premieres by founder-playwrights Michael McKeever and Christopher Demos-Brown.But its return to monthly performances after a year of pandemic isolation is strictly for some much-needed laughs.Through several weeks of rehearsals and theater games, artistic director Stuart Meltzer and improv coordinator/assistant director Elena María García have fashioned a company of actors better known for …

Dance films have been created and archived material has been streamed.

Choreographers who had already been investigating digital formats for dance have found that necessity has pushed them to the forefront. Visual boundaries have been explored and broken.Still, even with all the creativity and exploration occurring in the virtual realm, dancers have been in lockdown.
