FELLOW CREATIVE TITHING ARTISTS
COREY GEARHART AND STEFANIE COHEN
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. Over this past decade we have presented our performance works and site-specific installations — exploring the inner lives and fantasy worlds of everyday objects and activities. We teach workshops in somatic movement and devised performance in studios, festivals, and academic institutions; and curate performance through our space, Light Box in Detroit. As we continue on as collaborators in 2020 and beyond, making our work together under our very own names: “Stefanie Cohen and Corey Gearhart” we’re excited to see the possibilities this will bring!
Billy Mark is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Detroit. He’s married to Fiber Artist, Sarah Mark. His areas of exploration lately have been embodied poetics, experimental liturgies, site-specific music and poetry, and the creative and spiritual resources found in monasticism.
