Fragile form is a 3 part "visual concert", a type of performance that most defines the identity of CreArtBox. Visual art and theatrical design techniques enhance the audience's listening experience of classical and contemporary music while respecting the original musical composition. The music serves as the creative anchor of the performance while the visual component builds the dramaturgy arch that unifies the performance into a single piece of art.

Designed as a trilogy titled "Fragile Form: I Equilibrium, II Rupture, and III Metamorphosis", it explores the fragility of our surroundings, defined by the intervention of action and fueled by time. Objects, emotions, and thoughts alter their destiny suddenly, switching from a complete state to a broken state in a fraction of a second. Should we find the equilibrium to avoid any change? Are we ready to modify our behavior and learn from the past? ⁠ Do we have the courage to transform ourselves and find new perspectives?

This performance has been created by musician and visual artist Guillermo Laporta, pianist Josefina Urraca and multidisciplinary artist Sarah K Williams with music by Annamaria Kowalsky, Saint Saens, Caroline Shaw, Enrique Granados, Bryan Wysocki, 
Nico Muhly, Mozart, Michel van der aa, Tatiana Nikolayeva, Hannah Selin, Judd Greenstein, Shostakovich, Celeste Oram, Ravel & Nadia Boulanger,​ played by violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron, ​​cellist Julia Yang, violist Mathew Cohen, pianist Josefina Urraca​ and​ flutist Guillermo Laporta.
