The Chagall Performance Art Collective 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.

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, and forests.
