Peter Sciscioli is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary performer, creator, educator, and producer whose work encompasses dance, music, theater and film. He has been leading classes and workshops with his approach to Voice as Movement since 2009, in locations ranging from Mexico to North Macedonia and at numerous universities around the United States. He is honored to be a co-initiator of The Sounding Body series, which began in 2017. Most recently, Peter facilitated workshops in partnership with Iskra Sukarova in North Macedonia, during the Wooster Group’s Summer Institute, and MR’s Summer MELT (2019), while continuing to guest teach and offer private lessons over zoom. In New York he has also offered vocal coaching for several choreographer’s works, including Jane Comfort, Milka Djordjevich, Valerie Green, Thea Little, Juliana F. May, Larissa Velez-Jackson and Edisa Weeks.
Since 1997 Peter has been creating work with a wide variety of collaborators in traditional and nontraditional venues throughout the world. He has worked extensively in various capacities with Meredith Monk, as a member of Jane Comfort and Company, with Daria Faïn, and appeared in work by Jonathan Bepler/Matthew Barney, Ping Chong, DD Dorvillier, Susan Marshall and Philip Glass/Mary Zimmerman, among others.
In 2012, Peter founded the International Interdisciplinary Artists Consortium (IIAC), a network of artists and producers working across disciplines and cultures. He has been grateful to receive support from MR’s GPS program to attend meetings with partners in Eastern Europe and the Caucuses, and to help bring several artists from the region to the U.S. to participate in an annual IIAC residency and lab which will receive further support from MR in Summer 2022. He otherwise continues his work and research at home, virtually and abroad.
