“Oh look, there’s a human-fly wearing a tutu.” “Did you miss the bio-mech giraffe?” “How about the rat-faced comedian, Ratso, with a larger-than-life personality?”
These characters aren’t a result of a bad acid trip, rather, a creative renaissance called Big Nazo for filmmaker and performer Erminio Pinque. Established in 1987, Erminio has built an empire around his creatures, which has expanded to include live music, daredevil stunts and comedy.
In the theme of breaking creative barriers, PVD Fest will once again host the Big Nazo creatures, which will be doing something unprecedented this year: holding down the FirstWorks Plaza Stage, the largest stage at the festival, with what has been dubbed the Big Nazo Intergalactic Creature Dance Party.
During the dance party, the Big Nazo Intergalactic Creature Band will play their assortment of space-rock-funk for what will be a multifaceted expedition through the cosmos to entertain us earthly mortals. The band will be joined by Alien Go-Go Dancers, Rowdy Robots, and a collective assortment of various interdimensional beings that can’t wait to beam dancers up to their party in the sky.
The event is scheduled to kick off at 5pm at Kennedy Plaza right after the parade on June 3, which will feature only the best interplanetary antics from the Big Nazo creatures.
