Artist Bio

Artists Stefanie Cohen and Corey Gearhart, (working formerly under the collective alias “Upended Teacups”,) have been merging, embracing, disrupting, fragmenting and mending our backgrounds, educations, and decades of training in performance art, theatre, dance, somatics, sculpture, writing, drawing, and so on, since 2010. We have presented our performance works and site-specific installations — exploring the inner lives and fantasy worlds of everyday objects and activities — at SITE:Lab, Grand Rapids; Sidewalk Festival, Porous Borders, Spread Art and Theatro Chico, Detroit; SOMAFest, NYC; Links Hall and The Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago, and in movement-based performance festivals in NYC, Chicago and throughout the midwest. We teach workshops in somatic movement and devised performance in studios, festivals, and academic institutions; and curated performance from 2014-2021 through our space, Light Box in Detroit.
