About the artist

Kaj-anne Pepper (Pepper Pepper) is a multidisciplinary artist working in performance, drag, theatre and dance. Kaj-anne's fabulous drag persona "Ms. Pepper Pepper" is a humorous yet thoughtful gender bending MC and entertainer. Together they explore vulnerability, artifice and identity while turning tragic into magic and trauma into drama.

Pepper has premiered new work at festivals, nightclubs and alternative venues including RISK/REWARD, DANCE+, Performance Works Northwest, The Headwater’s Theatre, Austin International Drag Festival, Atlanta's Lucky Penny, Pelican Bomb New Orleans, PICA’s T:BA festival and internationally at OFF! Biennale Budapest.

Pepper's performance at SPACE is part of a cross-country performance and residency tour exploring gender, consciousness and uncertainty.
