Perel is an artist and writer based in New York. She draws from the polemics of identity and representation to create compositional models for interdisciplinary work including performance, installation, criticism and curatorial projects. Perel is currently an AIR at Brooklyn Arts Exchange (BAX), where she is making solo and collaborative performance on subjects including choreography and disability, crip time and queerness, power and access, and pain and desire.
Perel asks, “How do we move across space and time with respect to our collected histories?” Her essays, reviews, experimental prose and interviews engage this question at the convergence of the fields of contemporary art and performance. She originated the column, “Gimme Shelter: Performance Now” for Art21 Magazine and edited Critical Correspondence, the on-line dance and performance journal of Movement Research.
