PUSH Festival Presents
Dynasty Handbag, I Never Were Again, A Concert
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

Dynasty Handbag: I An, Moron presented in association with NYPAC
*NOTE! This is a NYC premier! And the show has been UPDATED for the new regime, after a SOLD OUT free premier in Los Angeles in October. VERY excited to bring this mess home to NY.
Ever wondered what Dynasty Handbag looks like in the Los Angeles hellscape? No? Well she made a show about it anyway.
I, An Moron is Dynasty Handbag's new falling-apart stand-up show is a current events review of her privates and her publics, covering topics such as white women having babies and how this makes her feel enraged/grossedout/furious/inadequate, a cover of Rihanna’s well-known blue-collar anthem celebrating the proletariat and an analysis of coyote discrimination in relationship to the Hollywood desert nightmare that is now a metaphor for complete global distruction. Topical, terrible, day two of 2017.
"One of the nuttiest and most brilliant artists working today" - Artillery Magazine

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.

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

Soul crushing creative blockage defense class
Part I of the workshop series 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.
Getting ideas out
All of our cups overrunneth with information, ideas, emotions, concepts, visual wonders, memories, passions, politics, – and sometimes it is hard to access these gems, let alone shape them into something that can be “seen” clearly. Part II of our workshop series will introduce some writing exercises to get into these conceptual file cabinets and play with what’s in there.
Physical rubberbanding it
As a performer – we have one tool. Our brains. Just kidding. Our bodz! That means we have to practice getting out of the the mind and into the bod. Part III is about physicalizing aspects of the discoveries made in Parts I and II of the workshop. Let’s work it out!
Self producing productions
Sometimes its very difficult to find a spot to present your brilliant opususus (opusi?). Many of us don’t want to necessarily present in conventional performances spaces. Or there just simply are not enough spaces that suit our needs. Or we just can’t find something! Learn how to produce your own show. We will look at all the details of self producing in its imperfect glory: finding a space, programming a solid event, social media outreach, contracts, dealing with $, working with friends, where to buy cheapest La Croix.
