Penny ArcadePenny Arcade | Speaker

Writer/Poet/Actress/Theatre maker

Penny Arcade is an icon of artistic resistance. She debuted at 18, in New York’s explosive Playhouse of The Ridiculous, the rock and roll, glitter/glam, political theatre that influenced everything from Hair, to punk, to David Bowie. Auteur of over 10 theatre and performances pieces, Penny’s work examines the boundaries between traditional theatre and performance art and she is known for her quotable aphorisms and content rich writing. Her decades-long focus on the creation of community as the goal of performance and her use of performance as a transformative act mark her as a true original. A teenaged Andy Warhol Factory Superstar, featured in the Warhol/Morrissey film Women In Revolt, Penny occupies a unique position in the American avant-garde through her long association with the architects of the American counter culture.
