Felicia Cooper updates!

PGOP member Felicia Cooper has some upcoming puppetry performances and events to share with us; “Hope Rises”, “Jeghetto” and more! 

June 30th at 7pm, I’ll be performing a new piece, entitled Hope Rises, an allegorical retelling of Pandora’s myth examining the ambiguity of hope with marionettes and object performance. This is the culmination of my residency with Pearl Arts Studios, and will be followed by a performance from Wendell Cooper, another resident artist! Here is the link to the Facebook event page. Please note that the second half of this evening will contain nudity and may not be appropriate for kids.

This show has been such a process of joy and discovery with amazing collaborators, and we’d love to be able to bring it to new venues in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York, and Baltimore. Let us know if you’d like to host it or know someone who would!

July 23-August 4, I’ll be travelling to North Carolina to apprentice under master puppeteer Tarish “Jeghetto” Pipkins at Paperhand Puppet Intervention.
This summer I’ll also be teaching puppet workshops with Pittsburgh Citiparks and the Mattress Factory! Stay tuned for details.
