INNER COURSE is a project by Rya Kleinpeter and Tora López initiated in 2011. The projects are largely performance based that incite systems of play through melodrama, humor, psychodramatic inquiry, and role-play. They’ve held performances and exhibitions at The Museum Of Old And New Art (Tasmania, AU), The Bunker Artspace (FL), Smack Mellon (NYC), Alaska Projects (Sydney, AU), Signs and Symbols (NYC), Honey Space (NYC), Whitney Houston Biennial (NYC), Pulse Art Fair (NYC), Life Is Art Foundation (New Orleans, LA), among others.


Rya and Tora met in 1997, while working at a Palestinian restaurant in San Francisco. They first performed as INNER COURSE in 2011, for the Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania, AU, and we have been working together ever since.
