Naked at the Met
Legendary Performance artist Janice Perry in "Naked at the Met,"
an epic tale of a fall from grace via gender, sexuality, an aging body,
and a 30-foot cliff. Free-ranging from Pope to Pop, Perry perverts the
course of social injustice and tackles the physical aftermath of a 30-foot
free-fall with live performance, digital media, naked truth, and her notorious
biting wit. Naked at the Met is living proof that creativity is the best
revenge. Seriously funny.
Janice Perry’s work has been produced and exhibited in academic
and cultural centers, screened at film festivals, and adapted for radio,
television and print in the USA and Europe since 1981. Perry leads groups
of emerging and established artists in creating new multi-media performative
work. She’s received multiple fellowships for interdisciplinary
performance from the Fulbright Commission/US Department of State, the
Vermont Arts Council/NEA, etc.
Perry grounds her cutting cultural criticism in live performance and digital
media. She addresses global politics, high and low culture, interpersonal
relationships, gender, sexuality, climate change, and other issues as
they present themselves on our global screens. Perry extrapolates from
everyday occurrences to world events, and vice versa, using serious comedy
to disempower social structures.
