ABOUT CHAGALL PAC

The Chagall Performance Art Collaborative (Chagall PAC) is a community of artists committed to collaborating across the disciplines and exploring the ways we experience art. We believe art is never the same in any given moment, but rather evolving and continually being shaped by the imaginations of those who come into contact with it.  We create performances that involve audience participation and expand to the newest reaches of contemporary performance art.

Chagall Performance Art Collaborative was co-founded by Diana Norma (literary artist) and Dennis Shafer (saxophonist). The pair met in Paris in 2006, and have been collaborating on a poetry-music project since, called Sounds in Bloom. When they started to collaborate with more artists from diverse disciplines, the Chagall PAC series was born. They perform in Boston, Paris, New York, and elsewhere in theaters, cultural institutes, concert halls, conservatories, salons, small gardens in Eastern Europe, art galleries, public spaces and forests.


Chagall PAC gives workshops in interdisciplinary collaboration using music, poetry, dance and soundpainting techniques  at conservatories, schools, and universities.  Our focus is in interdisciplinary collaboration and experimental methods.
