Marissa Perel is a performer who is currently based out of Brooklyn, NY. Pushing the boundaries and limitations of her body in relationship to sound, materials and participants, Perel seeks to create an unadulterated experience for the audience as she carries out acts of endurance toward cathartic and transformational ends. Functioning within the realms of dance, performance art and installation, Perel’s use of contemporary movement and text-based processes engage audience members intimately with the traumatic personal and political substance of her work.
She is an ardent collaborator with choreographers, musicians, poets and visual artists in New York and Chicago, and the practice of collaboration is a long-term artistic commitment that shapes both her solo and group projects. Perel’s curatorial work and teaching are also significant components of her artistic vision.
