PDMR Artist Showcase

Doors open at 6:30 PM
Two shows in one night! Join Co-Curators Staycee Pearl and Joseph Hall for the PearlDiving Movement Residency (PDMR) Artist Showcase with New York-based artist Wendell Cooper/MXoops and Pittsburgh-based artist Felicia Cooper. In Carrying Capacity, Wendell Cooper/MXoops takes us on a speculative journey mixing the sacred and profane in a multimedia ritual using sound meditation, urban dance, video projection, and rap. Felicia Cooper creates a transportive experience with a large scale puppet show in Hope Rises, an allegory of Pandora's myth which tells the story of  a young girl searching for hope in a world where monsters lurk beneath floorboards and in shadows. Following the show will be an exciting party curated by Wendell Cooper/MXoops and a chance to meet the artists.


PearlDiving Movement Residency supports professional movement artists making dance-based multimedia work by providing rehearsal space, technical support, mentorship, and a stipend during a month-long residency that culminates with an in-progress showing at PearlArts Studios.
