Salon Performance Series
MDD’s Salon Performance Series, founded in 2010, is a unique opportunity to view and engage with original performing arts and dance works-in-progress of DeGarmo and guest artists. Its facilitated audience response approach is a unique way for the public to actively participate in the creation of new work. The series gives opportunities to transcultural, transdisciplinary artists and art forms underrepresented in traditional or commercial performing or performance art venues.
Salon Performance Series Schedule
All performances are on Thursdays @ 7pm.

We are now booking Las Fridas for the 2020-22 seasons. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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.”
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.
