Music for Freddy is a replenishing holiday from his work as a performer, so he is always keen to come and play. Please feel free to get in touch via the contact form for any kind of event.
Since 2001 Freddy has run the multi-media arts organisation Being in Motion. He held a festival at the 291 Gallery in Hackney London including 100’s of artists spanning the fields of performance art, dance, animation, music video, interactive installation, photography and live music.
Being in Motion’s mission is to create accessible environments for artists to present their work, meet other artists that may become potential collaborators and to interface with the public in a way that the process of making the work is part of the work itself.
Most recently, in Central Italy, Being in Motion has set up the Ritratti D'Artista Experimental Dance Festival, curated by Freddy’s wife Maria Rita Salvi. The public get a complete insight into the process of the artist as they are invited to join a workshop, participate in a work in progress directed by the artist, and then interract at a live Q+A after the show. Now in its third year the festival has been acclaimed by the public, its sponsors, the local council and the regional arts body that supports it.
From 2008-2018 Freddy ran the interactive performance company The Artful Badger. Inspired by its original ecstatic dance workshop program, the company exploded into popularity following its sell out shows at the Vaults Festival in London Bridge and its 24 hour programs of workshops, walkabout theatre and live music till dawn in the woods at the Secret Garden Party Festival.
Famous for their striking animal masks, wild nature inspired themes and jump-up dancers with bands, the Artful Badger was iconic for its time and is still referenced in fashion, legend and shamanic inspired theatre and on stage-dancing at gigs. Badger Radio was the Artful Badger’s devoted podcast presented by Freddy. The archive of all shows is available here
