 Janice Perry – Not Just Another Pretty Face: a retrospective

“One of the World’s Most Respected Performance Artists” – BBC Radio

Janice Perry laughs us through her 35+ years 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 as “a cross between Doris Day and a high-velocity rifle” by London’s Independent newspaper, Perry began touring with her ground-breaking solo performances in 1981.

She 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 award grants from the Fulbright Commission, the Vermont Arts Council and the NEA.

“The OTHER America” – Hamburg Morgenpost

“A master at the peak of perfection” – Cologne Anzeiger

“Bizarre and Brainy” – The Village Voice

“When I performed at the University of Southern Utah, people called me the Devil and ran screaming from the room” – Janice Perry

in association with The Centre for Solo Performance.
