Aisha Cousins and Sydnie L. Mosley
Aisha Cousins writes performance art scores (instructions for live art projects) that engage black audiences in exploring their contrasting histories and aesthetics while processing their shared sociological shifts. Her work has been performed with institutions such as Weeksville Heritage Center, BRIC, Project Row Houses, MoCADA, and MoMA PS1.
Sydnie L. Mosley is an artist-activist whose choreographic work with her company SLMDances actively engages audiences, often reflecting the experiences of black peoples and women. Recent awards include The Performance Project @ University Settlement (Artist in Residence 2015-2016), the CUNY Dance Initiative (2016 Artist in Residence), Dancing While Black Artist Fellowship (2015-2016), and The Field Leadership Fund (2015-2017).
Mosley and Cousins met in 2013 through The Laundromat Project's Create Change Residency and Fellowship.
