As part of PearlDiving Movement Residency (PDMR), join Puppetry Artist Felicia Cooper in a Crankie Making Workshop! Felicia is currently working on a piece based off Pandora's myth. To start off the night, Felicia will share with us the story of Pandora's origin, and from there, everyone of all ages is invited to share in the process of illustrating the story by creating a special crankie that Felicia will incorporate into her PDMR Showcase at the end of the month. All tools will be provided as well as refreshments.


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 a free in-progress showing at PearlArts Studios on Friday, June 30. The dual-track program serves both local and visiting artists and offers time in an environment where research, play, and risk-taking are encouraged in order to create and present new work. Participants are committed to personal and professional development, community engagement, and represent diverse voices in the local and national contemporary dance field.


Felicia Cooper is a puppeteer and theatre artist based in Pittsburgh. Over the past three years, she has performed storytelling and puppetry throughout the east coast, with Bread & Puppet Theater, Dixon Place's Puppet BloK!, Pittsburgh's Re:NEW Festival, The Irma Freeman Center for Imagination, and in residence at Future Tenant Art Studio and the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, where she is a teaching artist. She has also toured the east coast with her work in solo performance and received a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to continue her work in puppetry and the storied mythology of the modern world.
