The BU Medical Campus Arts Outreach Initiative invites members of the community to an innovative performance project conceived to support and honor the recovery of a selected group of patients from the Boston Medical Center’s Refugee Clinic, Cancer Center and department of Neurology. “DIWAN” is a pilot experience in creative collaboration between artists and patients, where participants will join on stage with acclaimed Spanish artists including flamenco dancer Auxi Fernndez and pianist Moiss Fernndez Via. “This performance is an innovative dialogue between music, theatre, dance, and the passionate poetic world of Andalusian poetry. It is a garden for the senses,” explained Moiss Fernndez Via, Project Curator and Researcher for the Arts Outreach Initiative. The initiative is an unprecedented partnership between Boston University College of Fine Arts (CFA) and the Medical Campus.
