ABOUT
-----------

In Mother May I, we are letting our moms pick the songs we will perform, and weaving this mom-curated playlist with music, dance and performance into a meditation on the infiniteness of global and person Mom-ness.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
-------------------------------

EMILY OLIVEIRA is a Brooklyn-based performance artist, sculptor, textile artist and costume designer. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and studied performance at Brown University. Her performance works include a transcription-based adaptation of ABC’s ‘The Bachelor’ [Everything Happens for a Reason (Panoply Performance Lab and Judson Memorial Church)], a live re-enactment of an episode of the radio show Delilah [DELILAH (What Is Love? Baby Don’t Hurt Me) (Hot! Festival of Queer Theater at Dixon Place)], a disco meditation on the wedding and funeral of Princess Diana [Kings and Queens of Love (Ars Nova)] and Do You Ever Long for True Love From Me, a musical seance to summon the soul of Buddy Holly into the Judson Memorial Church so that he could be her boyfriend. Her work uses transcribed and original text, original and popular music, dance and full-body costumes to subvert the despotism of white femininity and examine narratives about love, sex, gender and race in American popular culture. Her costumes have been shown at The Judson Memorial Church, Invisible Dog, CATCH, The Center for Performance Research and Theatre for the New City. She is a teaching artist at the Children’s Museum of the Arts and a freelance design assistant at Todd Oldham studios. She is a 2017 Ars Nova Makers Lab resident artist.
