Descriptive Summary

Source - dnr: Perron, Wendy
Creator: Perron, Wendy
Title: Wendy Perron Papers
Dates [inclusive]: 1973-2001
Abstract: Perron wrote reviews for The Soho Weekly News and focused on a range of experimental performance practices that flourished in New York during the late 1970s. Being knowledgeable of the historical circumstances under which experimental "performance art" emerged in New York, she was among the earliest critics to write about this then new genre combining thick description and critical analysis. This collection consists of clippings of articles Perron wrote for  The Soho Weekly News from 1976-1978, as well as programs, flyers, and other ephemera from dance performances in the 1970s-1980s.
