Holly Hughes

Holly Hughes: Sapphic Platter Sampler

"Everything you ever wanted in a lesbian performance artist and less..." Los Angeles Times

Performance artist and playwright Holly Hughes has a flair for telling outrageous stories of everyday lesbian life, touching off controversy and challenging complacency at every turn. Her combination of poetic imagery and political satire maps the troubled fault lines of identity, and places her work at the center of America’s culture wars. The two-time Obie Award winner returns to Los Angeles with new work in the key of canine, plus greatest hits from Preaching to the Perverted and Clit Notes. Hughes has performed at venues across North America, Great Britain and Australia, including the Walker Art Center, the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Guggenheim Museum, the Yale Repertory, the Drill Hall in London, and numerous universities. She has published two books: Clit Notes: A Sapphic Sampler and O Solo Homo: The New Queer Performance.

Organized by Brighde Mullins.
