“Turn. Sway. Jump. Pray.” – Upended Teacups

Dreams as political action. Jumping rope as prayer. A family picnic with people unrelated by blood…. An interactive performance installation in which boxers and double dutch players erase chalk lines on a geographic border, while dreamers in hammocks blur boundaries between people. With Downtown Boxing Gym.

Saturday, May 16 from 12-6PM at Greater Missionary Baptist Church – 2527 Carpenter Street

Upended Teacups is the collaborative identity of artists Stefanie Cohen and Corey Gearhart, based both in Ann Arbor and Detroit, MI. Since 2010, they have presented several performance works and site-sensitive performance installations at SITE:Lab, Grand Rapids, Sidewalk Festival, Detroit, SOMAFest, NYC, Links Hall and The Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago, and in movement-based performance festivals in Chicago, Michigan and Wisconsin. They teach classes in movement and generative artistic process in private studios, festivals and academic institutions; and curate performance through their space, Light Box in Detroit.
