10 Contemporary Performance Artists You Should Know

 Jess Dobkin

In your face, from the theatrical angle: Hailing from Toronto, avant-garde venue regular Jess Dobkin performs, curates, awes, and sparkles. Her explicit humor-infused art uses the body as a medium and takes plenty liberty with it. Die laughing with the vagina clown car. Ponder love with the nipple cabaret as “two boobs become puppets, negotiating the complexities of their relationship in a silent movie inspired puppet show.” Unclench your inhibitions.
