Her work is based in a deep interrogation of the mediums, materials and tools necessary for a particular expression. Her current focus lies in the physical activation of space through performance, meaning carried in objects, and theater as a place of shared experience and exchange.
Peiyi grew up in Santa Barbara, CA. While ever entranced by the ocean, she was perhaps not always as interested in going to the beach. She studied literature, writing, and visual arts at Columbia University. She then moved to Brooklyn and spent the next four years immersed in the NY downtown theater and experimental music scenes, with occasional excursions into independent and commercial cinema.
Her work has been shown at REDCAT, HERE Arts Center, P.S. 122, The Ontological-Hysteric, The Chocolate Factory, Prague Quadrennial, and various other venues and institutions in New York, Berlin, and Los Angeles.
