Experiments in Opera: Sisyphus

02/13/15 - 02/21/15

Dynasty Handbag: Soggy Glasses, A Homo’s Odyssey

01/16/15 - 01/18/15

A feminist, comedic, fanny-packed, monomythic hero-journey. Using Homer’s Odyssey as both dramaturgical framework and toilet paper, Dynasty Handbag recasts the masculine allegory of returning home in a feminist context, on a voyage though her extremities, heart, mind, bowels, and artist colon-y.
