Since she began performing at the New York City women’s art cooperative the WOW Café in the early 1980s, Holly Hughes has established herself as one of the most important figures in feminist performance. She has written and performed such plays as The Well of Horniness and Let Them Eat Cake and the solo shows Clit Notes, Preaching to the Perverted and The Dog and Pony Show (Bring Your Own Pony). She has received grants from the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the New York State Council and the Guggenheim Foundation, among others, and has won a Lambda Book Award as well as two OBIE Awards. Hughes’s innovative work in both solo and group performance has been foundational for performance artists and for performance studies as an academic field.
