“One of the World’s Most Respected Performance Artists” – BBC Radio
Janice Perry laughs us through her 35+ year career as an international performance artist and political satirist, free-ranging from Pope to Pop, from Marilyn Monroe through a few Gulf Wars, High Fashion, Erotica, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Robert Mapplethorpe’s naked men and Arts censorship.
Described by The Independent as “a cross between Doris Day and a high-velocity rifle,” Perry began touring with her ground-breaking solo performances in 1981. Perry works with emerging and established artists worldwide. Her work has been adapted for television, radio and print (NPR, PBS, BBC 2, Channel 4, BBC Radio 3, VPT and WDR), and she has been awarded grants from the Fulbright Commission, the Vermont Arts Council and the NEA.
