PE|Mo

Founded in 2011, PE|Mo creates immersive performance works that incorporate unpredictable social arrangements, physical risk, and alternative narratives. A collaboration between HATLO and Rosa Vissers, PE|Mo has been presented at Open Flight, Velocity’s BIG BANG! and NEXT Fest NW, 12 Minutes Max and NW New Works Festival at On the Boards, the Seattle International Dance Festival, and Lo Fi Arts Festival at Smoke Farm.

About

Everybody does everything in our creative process. Everyone writes, everyone dances, everyone sings, everyone acts. Often our creative process involves multiple “experiments” where we work to combine multiple images/ideas —through movement, text or both. We challenge the notion that the only thing worth seeing is the finished project–for us process is equally if not more important than the “finished” piece. This results in multiple versions of a piece, pushing toward a more authentic version of the work.

PE|Mo produced their own evening length performance of Anatomy of an Accident in 2015 for which they received a DANCE CRUSH award from SeattleDances. They’ve received funding from 4Culture and Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, the Flight Deck 2011 residency, LEAF (’11-’12) and FLOWER (’12 – ’13) Season residencies at Studio Current, a Project: Space Available 2013 residency, and was in residence at the Orchard Project 2014 in upstate New York, and Cornish Arts Incubator 2014.
