Weirdo Night - April 24th

Weirdo Night with DYNASTY HANDBAG, D'Lo, Julius Smack, Wizard Apprentice, Josef Kraska (video) DANCE-Y-OKE + More!

D’LO
is queer/transgender Tamil Sri Lankan-American actor/writer/comic. You’ve seen D’Lo in LOOKING (HBO), TRANSPARENT (Amazon), SENSE 8 (Netflix), Mr. ROBOT (CW) and the Emmy nominated mini-doc series THIS IS ME produced by Rhys Ernst and Zackary Drucker. He also can be found in the documentary based on his life/work called PERFORMING GIRL and Sundance Fellow Adelina Anthony’s film BRUISING FOR BESOS as Rani. He’s also been featured in Buzzfeed & Fusion videos, and in many webseries including EASTSIDERS, DYKE CENTRAL and Issa Rae's Color Creative & Project Greenlight produced MINIMUM WAGE and his own series PRIVATE DICK. He tours his solo shows (stand-up & theater) on the university/college circuit, facilitates writing and performance workshops nationally, and is also a co-producer with a nationally touring group of Asian American comics - Disoriented Comedy.

JULIUS SMACK
is a statue awoken from antiquity. His performances propose a “storybook realness" incorporating vogue-inspired dance and a dissonance between digital textures and classical instrumentation. He has released two albums on Practical Records, an artist-run label that he founded in 2013.

WIZARD APPRENTICE
is an independent electronic music producer, motion graphics and live performance artist. As a highly-sensitive introvert, her multimedia projects are strategies for energetically managing an overwhelming world. Her music is a combination of lyrical precision, minimalistic composition, and technically amateurish charm. She creates digitally-based media that takes advantage of accessible, user-friendly technology; allowing her to skip time consuming learning curves and get straight to focusing on inventing personalized yet highly relatable language for deeply subtle and internal experiences. She's not a gear-head, rather, a digital folk artist who vividly and simplistically expresses her inner world using resourcefulness and honesty. Her video work incorporates green screen graphics, digital puppetry, and minimalistic compositing to produce imagery that’s cerebral, psychedelic, campy, and hypnotic. She combines song and video to create multimedia live performances that explore intimate emotional themes ranging from the challenges/triumphs of being an empath to overstimulation in the Internet Age.

JOSEF KRASKA
aka Babe E., leads a full life in his home studio: composing music, animating, directing his friends around, playing dress-up, and crafting seasonal “wreoths” to share with his friends and family. Making music videos for Peppré Ann to star in, is his main motivation. He has recently directed music videos for Bushwick superstar, Macy Rodman, as well as provided visuals for Colin Self’s opera Siblings (Elation VI), which premiered at MoMA PS1 last month. Joseph hopes to one day bring Peppré Ann to a theater near you! 

DANCE-Y-OKE is a dance party wherein the crowd dances along to amazing music videos with fresh ass dancing in them. ala Janet Jackson, Aaliyah, Michael Jackson, Beyoncè, Salt-N-Pepa. see you on the donz floohr!

BERLIN - SCHWULES MUSEUM

CLOSING PERFORMANCE BY DYNASTY HANDBAG
AS PART OF THE COLONY EXHIBITION, BERLIN, GERMANY
ALSO HAVE 2 VIDEOS IN THIS SHOW!

colony is a group exhibition by the Ankara-based LGBTIQ* association, Kaos GL, which brings together contemporary artistic inquries that deal with the social norms of binaries and dichotomies, and constructs a queer utopia. Despite severe political reprisals in Turkey, held between the dates 23 December, 2017 - 3 February, 2018 in Istanbul, colony was composed by the artists and participants; Yavuz Erkan, Ursula Mayer, Nilbar Güreş, Erinç Seymen & Uğur Engin Deniz, Daria Martin, Gökçe Yiğitel, Mary Maggic, İris Ergül, Katja Novitskova, Furkan Öztekin, Dynasty Handbag, Aykan Safoğlu, İz Öztat and Zişan, Kerem Ozan Bayraktar, Mariah Garnett, Umut Yıldırım, Yasemin Nur and Let the Good Times Roll. The exhibition was corporealised by the curation of Kevser Güler, Derya Bayraktaroğlu and Aylime Aslı Demir.

Shortly before the opening of the exhibition in the cities of both Istanbul and Ankara, on 15 November, 2017, the government of Ankara established a general ban on all LGBTIQ*-related events and public activities in the capital city, which includes the activities of Kaos GL. For this reason, Kaos GL was forced to withdraw any institutional support for the exhibiton project. As this was a highly publicized project, Kaos GL wanted to prevent a precedent and feared tightening of bans in Istanbul and other cities.

colony brings the definition of 'human' into question. The exhibition critically engages with the means of making knowledge, science, technology, and politics that privilege the human species by attributing life entirely to mankind. By the agency of intimating a body and body-beings, it brings together a gathering of artistic inquiries that deliberate constructed dichotomies such as human/non-human, nature/culture, and organic/synthetic. Across moralism(s), and female-male morphologies stuck in procreation, colony also explores the constitutive ways in which nature’s sanctions of normativity operate. Interfaced with discussions around language and gender, the exhibition probes the present-day bearings of evading human-centred narratives, which are derived from and self-constituted with the alliance of culture-history-society-power. Through the scope of post-human and queer critique kinship, colony embodies a myriad of offerings that discuss such narratives.

By expressing its solidarity with sister organisation, Kaos GL, Schwules Museum is presenting a comprehensive selection from the exhibition colony.

Curated by Derya Bayraktaroğlu and Aylime Aslı Demir, and realized by the support and the companionship of the artist Aykan Safoğlu, Schwules Museum edition of colony will be held from 9 March to 15 April, 2018 as a part of the Year of the Women in the Museum.

REBECCA HAVEMEYER PRESENTS! DYNASTY HANDBAG!!

Rebecca is back on the stage with one of the most incredible wonders of the world... DYNASTY HANDBAG!! Straight outta Los Angeles, Dynasty brings to Austin things that with explode ya' brain with overload, supersaturation, and tha' inability ta' blink due to the overwhelming amazingness of it allllll!! GET THEM TICKETS NOW BEFORE THEY GONE! 

I, An Moron is Dynasty Handbag's falling-apart stand-up show that takes a googley-eyed macroscopic look into post-Trump North American activism and its myriad ways to “resist” while still enjoying prison labor pour-over coffee and nut milk. A “queering” of the one-woman show, I, An Moron critiques this time-honored form of feminist expression by highlighting the shortcomings and evil origins of the white heterosexual female struggle. Topics covered include: jars as activism, white babies, Rihanna's blue-collar anthem celebrating the proletariat, and an analysis/jazz dance number about coyote discrimination in Hollywood as a metaphor for complete global destruction. Show is updated to include horrible current event jokes. Day of show events even!  

This project made possible by NYPAC and Hammer Museum.

SPF is an initiative by Galerie Juliette Jongma & Kunstverein, Amsterdam, in collaboration with De Ateliers, organized by Jeanine Hofland
Generously supported by the municipality of Amsterdam; Stadsdeel Zuid

Dynasty Handbag presents a mixed handbag of "songs" which were never recorded or released, by people she never was. Hits include a muddy new-country ballad about fear of intimacy, a vaguely European new wave lezbo-bot dance jam concerning breakfast choices and capitalism, and an unfinished pill-faced hippy ode to mother earth. An imaginary lifetime—unplugged, unhinged, and uncomfortable. Expect the worst best dancing and 30 second death metal voice at some point.

Rowdy, raunchy and queer as folk, Dynasty Handbag is a blazing stage presence. Here she presents a batch of “golden oldies”—a veritable mixtape of songs from a roster of wholly invented artists. From country ballads to Euro dance, the tunes are good for a laugh and much more besides. This is caffeinated camp—a manic, celebratory send-up of gender and performativity. … one of the funniest, tone-perfect pieces of performance art seen in years.The New York Times

Creativity Hurdles Workshoppe!

Creativity Hurdles Workshop with Jibz Cameron
Saturday, October 22nd, 1-4pm
$40 WCCW Member / $50 Regular
 


This workshop focuses on identifying and untangling various creative blockages that prevent us from accessing our truest most inspired places. These beasts can take many forms - from blocks that are reinforced culturally to just old crap we carry around with us. Learn some new tools to get through these thorny SPIRIT blockages and move THROUGH with your ART.

And, as our cups overrunneth with information, ideas, emotions, concepts, visual wonders, memories, passions, politics, - sometimes it is hard to access these gems, let alone shape them into something that can be "seen" clearly. We will explore writing exercises to get into these conceptual file cabinets and play with what's in there.

She's been featured at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, in "Change The Ratio" at South By Southwest, The Las Vegas Comedy Festival, and Atlanta's Red Clay Comedy Festival. She's written for several shows including Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, The Soup TV, Style Network’s The Dish, and a show that only aired in the Ukraine & on German Comedy Central called Naked & Funny. She currently writes on Comedy Central's Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, and is one third of the comedy trio Birds of Prey, which was voted Best Sketch Group by Punchline Magazine. She's been recently recognized for the "avant-garde" films she creates on her Instagram, @avant_gram. 

Here's what EVERYONE (no exceptions) is saying...

"Lizzy Cooperman's a witchy lady. In her act, she writhes around the stage like a crazy combination of Sarah Jessica Parker in Hocus Pocus and Norma Desmond. She plays morose tones on a keyboard, and punctuates her set with unhinged laughter. She's all of us, is what I'm saying, and catching her at Sunday's Depresshow at Branx between two other shows was an accidental Bridgetown highlight." - Portland Mercury

New Show!
I, An Moron
