Penny Arcade Penny Arcade

Time Out says

New York legend Penny Arcade has the unique distinction of pioneering both performance art and burlesque as we know them today. And she has apologised for at least one. With four decades' experience under her belt, including collaborations with the likes of Warhol and Jack Smith, Arcade remains fiercely engaged with contemporary politics and culture as well as bearing witness to recent history. Mixing memoir, character comedy and radical satire, 'B!D!F!W!' is her signature piece and its exploration of misogyny and repressions in capitalist society remains as challenging, witty and germane today as when it premiered two decades ago - acute, humane, unmissable. The hot dancers don't hurt, either - they're locally recruited, as are a number of special guest performers. This run follows successful summer stints at the Arcola Tent and Old Vic Tunnels co-presented by Time Out Live.
