Choreographer and performance artist Pepper Pepper stage dives right into your heart with a new and daring spectacle of dance, glitter and drag. Pepper is accompanied by drag artist and duet partner Mr. E, together they prance, twist and get fabulous to an original score by Cabiria Jones peppered with a mix of pop sensations. D.I.V.A Practice is a performance and research project about being fabulous in the face of uncertainty while questioning the significance of drag and gender in contemporary culture.
After returning from an international trip to Hungary for the Off! Biennale Budapest and hostessing the wildly successful Critical Mascara for PICA’s T:BA festival Pepper Pepper (aka the artist Kaj-anne Pepper) is ready to serve Portland a rigorous and commanding dance drag spectacular.
