Las Fridas is a 60-minute transcultural-transdisciplinary duet inspired by the life and work of Mexican painter and revolutionary, Frida Kahlo.

November 2019 audience members heralded Las Fridas as:

  • “Brilliant in composition & execution.”
  • “Not scared to push the audience right up to the edge that the performers are living on.”
  • “Wonderfully in your face, both literally and metaphorically.”

Solo Work

Mark DeGarmo 010717 9 3935

Mark DeGarmo is refining a set of transdisciplinary solo works, highlighting a range of theatrical styles and genres: drama to comedy and abstract to literal. This one-man show combines concert dance, music, theater, performance art, athleticism and clown. It investigates Western artists Walt Whitman and Raymond Duncan. “The Metrics of Awakening,” “Whoever You Are (Meditations on Walt Whitman),” and “A Happening: Raymond Duncan’s Art/Work Theories” make up the 60-minute program.
