Penny Arcade



In 1990 Penny Arcade created Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!, her sex and censorship show, in response to the Senator Helms -National Endowment For The Arts censorship crisis. Originally conceived as a 4 day audit for an NEA solo fellowship grant, it was a run away success, fueled by what became known as The Drag Factor, as people returned over and over, dragging their friends, co-workers, neighbors and family to share the show and the show's cathartic audience dance break. A call for the separation of church and State, Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore! is a powerful critique of the Christian right as well as of the politically correct Left. A blend of outrageous humor, political humanism, freedom of expression and erotic dancing, Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore! shocked NY's supposedly unshakeable downtown art scene with it's brazen use of strippers and erotic dancers and it's huge audience dance break. Are you ready for an epiphany?
