"True power comes from knowing the absolute truth ourselves, and that takes ruthless honesty." -- Penny Arcade

In conjunction with her performances of Longing Lasts Longer (Feb 1,2 & 8,9 at PICA), Penny Arcade will offer a workshop for artists of all disciplines and others who are seeking to increase their authenticity and integrity in their life and work. Bring 5-7 minutes of material or create something new onsite through guided writing/devising exercises. Maximum 25 participants. Fee $15.

Penny Arcade is unlike any performer one can meet. She has a career spanning 50 years, and is recognized as one of a handful of artists who created and continue to define performance art as we know it today. A former Warhol superstar and contemporary of Debbie Harry and Patti Smith, Quentin Crisp named Penny Arcade as the woman he most identified with. Her history, lineage and ability as a live performer is simply unsurpassable.
