MX Oops

MX Oops is a multimedia performance artist and educator whose work centers hybridity, encouraging ecstatic disobedience as a path toward embodied wellness. Their vision is of a world where we can each be held in the fullness of our complexity. The party is the point of departure, a queer site of transnational Afro-diasporic imagining. Their creative practice links urban arts [breaking, house, vogue femme, rap, dj, vj, fashion], somatic studies [yoga, thai yoga massage, energy healing, sound baths], media studies, and gender studies. Through this transdisciplinary approach, their work questions whether consciousness itself is the primary medium. These mediums come together to welcome party people into a lush world of queer becoming.

Their work has been supported by the Jerome Foundation, National Performance Network, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Dixon Place Dance Commission, Research Foundation CUNY. Residencies include: Dance Theater Workshop Studio Series, CultureHub NYC Resident Artist, Ammerman Center for Art and Technology, Henan Normal University, Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Barnard College, University of Florida, and Old Dominion University. Their work has been presented at Abrons Art Center, The Box, American Realness, Witte de Witte Contemporary Art Center, Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Leslie Lohman Museum of Art Gala, Socrates Sculpture Park Benefit, and the GoDown Center in Nairobi Kenya, as a Cultural Envoy of the US State Department.

A certified yoga instructor (500hr RYT) and practitioner of Thai Yoga Massage, trained in various forms of energy healing, they completed a BA in dance and religion at the George Washington University and completed an Integrated Media Arts MFA at Hunter College. They are currently an Assistant Professor of Dance, Multimedia Performance, and Somatic Studies in the Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre, and Dance at Lehman College, City University of New York, USA.
