Description

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.

Artistic intent

We are taught to seek happiness.  
They show us success.  
Listen to the almighty and you shall become.  

Calling on the superhero of my imagination.  
The superhuman that escapes reality without ever leaving it.  
You who I wish to become.  

Sad, lonely, upset, and confused.  
They are. 
Similar, I am.  

Almighty. 
Yeah.
