Fancy Violence is materialized by a painting by Rodolpho Parigi. This character/alter-ego of Parigi appears in a performance entitled Poltergeist, which happened at Pivô São Paulo, Brazil.

Fancy is a character who transits through performance, theatre and illusionism. Her characteristics reach out a trans woman, Fancy is not a drag queen nor a transvestite. The work happens as a sculptural performance, and not as a concert. Art history, sexual identity, and the possible metamorphosis and corporal illusions are subjects that interest Fancy. The body becomes a vibrant field of experiences. Fancy studied oriental arts as Kabuki, Butoh, Sumie and Kung Fu, and also mentioning synthetic music and EBM are always present in her appearances, creating a sound architecture to reach a specific territory.
