Pearls (2013). Solo. 8:20 Music:      Mother by Balanescu Quartet and The Family by DJ Robert Hood

Detroit’s Marcus White makes himself even more vulnerable in “Pearls.” A strong man of ambiguous sexuality, White ingeniously interacts with himself — especially his hands, wildly chattering into his face — and with heaps of rustling, glowing necklaces. (Chicago Tribune, 2014)
