“transgressive sexiness” – New York Times, June 12, 2014, Alastair Macaulay.
“dances with remarkable dug-in volatility” – Village Voice, June 22, 2010, Deborah Jowitt.
Complex Stability is a performance, research, and educational organization. Our mission is to engage the public in a conversation around how culturally engrained biases creep into our consciousness and interrupt our ability to transcend apparent ‘otherness’.
Wendell Cooper, founder of Complex Stability, performs as Mx. Oops, ‘an ambisexual juggernaut from a sister dimension’. Mx. Oops is a manifestation of Cooper’s training in mediation and healing, using multimedia performance and installation as a tool to explore the role of consciousness in the age of new media.
Wendell Cooper has taught and performed as Mx. Oops both nationally and internationally in Asia, Africa, Europe. Urban dance and rapping, as a part of an emerging global language of Hip Hop, have served as a way for him to share ideas and philosophies with artist in many cultures. This sense of urban dance and electronic music being a transcultural space of inclusion and sharing of information is central to his work.
Christopher Edmondson (aka Omen Phaze) is an electronic music producer, writer, visual and performing artist. With a specialization in large scale electronic music production, he has toured extensively across the United States and composed music for several artists including: Conspirator, The Disco Biscuits, and Untamed.
Edmondson, like Cooper, combines many genres to shape his own unique style. Their current collaborative project, ‘Exile’, collages dance and music genres in a tangle of nightlife couture, science fiction, and indigenous futurism. ”
