Performances, Essays, Interviews
Penny Arcade aka Susana Ventura is an internationally respected writer,poet, actress, director and one of the handful of artists who created and continue to define Performance Art for nearly three decades. Her unique voice and magnetic stage presence have given her mainstream career recognition far beyond America’s shores, from Brazil to Austria, Australia to Britain to Mexico.
Penny Arcade debuted with John Vaccaro’s explosive Playhouse of The Ridiculous at 18 years , and was a Warhol Factory superstar at 19, featured in the Warhol film Women In Revolt, available on DVD .
With an artistic career spanning 40 years, Penny Arcade occupies a unique position in the American counter-culture and the American Avant-Garde. HM Koutoukas referred to her as “The Little Sister of The Avant-garde” because of her long association with the architects of the American counter culture including Andy Warhol, Charles Henri Ford, John Vaccaro, Judith Malina, Ellen Stewart, Jackie Curtis, HM Koutukas, Taylor Mead, Jonas Mekas, Jack Smith, Harry Smith, Tom O’Horgan, Charles Ludlam, among others.
Penny Arcade’s work has long focused on the other and the outsider, giving voice to those marginalized by society and her decades long focus on the creation of community and inclusion as the goals of performance. Her efforts to use performance as a transformative act mark her as a true original in American theatre and performance art. Many of her theatrical innovations have passed into the mainstream of both American and international theatre and performance.
In 1991 Quentin Crisp identified Ms Arcade as his soul mate and anima figure , the woman he most identified with and their friendship became professional and they presented performances together for close to a decade.
Her highly praised, award winning documentary project The LES Bio Project, “Stemming The Tide Of Cultural Amnesia” which she co-creates with long time collaborator video producer Steve Zehentner has been broadcasted weekly in NY since 1999 every Wednesday at 11pm on Ch 34 Time /Warner and RCN 112 and cybercasts each wed at 10:30 at www.mnn.org
