I create wearable-performative characters that embody ideals and tell stories. I call my characters ‘Fine Art Superheroes’ because just like comic-book characters, my heroes wear costumes representing the values they embody. I create my costumes by hand, using fabric paint, cotton leotards, and various materials for the headpieces. I use Fine Arts patterns from different cultures to create unique character identities which visually connect to each character's theme. After creating the suits I collaborate with dancers to create live performances and photographs which explore each character's identity and personal narrative. Through my characters I uncover new ideas, make connections and find answers to deeper questions about sciences, spirituality, myth-making, and the creative process.

Come see 3 fine art superheroes performing live in Davis Square. Remon, the avatar of protest, Piridalil, the avatar of bravery, and Doñagdeo - the avatar of transformation, played by Freddy Moss, Fridien Nana, and Erin Chisea.

In this collaboration by Basil El Halwagy and Margherita Bergamo, art meets dance to explore transformation. Bergamo is an independent choreographer and performer based in France. Together they are creating a performance that tells a story, focusing on the life of one historical figure, while sharing insight on how transformation enters and guides the human experience.
