Superheroes Cry Too
Superheroes Cry Too is an immersive experience that combines sound, performance, and visual media. This presentation reflects on superhero theories and the truths of our reality. It is a collection of performance solos and video projections powered by sound. The newly formed collective, FRGMNT, presents an unconventional way to experiencing artistic practices founded in Hip Hop music and street dance.
