Judith Ren-Lay is a multi-discipline artist who has produced work in dance, performance, music, poetry, photography, collage, drawing and sculpture as well as costume and set design for her signature solo pieces. Since 1978 her work has been part of New York's performance world, and is archived at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. This is her return to performance after many years recovering from a run-in with a speeding cab.
