SHELL OF a woman
Shell of a Woman is Dynasty Handbag's expert powerpoint lecture on the "10 Greatest Works Of Art" according to the internet. Professor Bags will "explain" (make up lies) about the work's origins which naturally devolve into semi-autobiographical/insane narratives peppered with songs, dance numbers and psychedelic inner monologuing. For example, did you know that Picasso's Guernica is about PETA activists setting free cows from a factory farm on the I5 and the subsequent rebellion of said cows against their liberators and Jackson Pollock's famous sloppy wiggle paintings are representations of wild 90's pasta dishes that were served in a revolving restaurant in Time's Square - plus more true facts plus a tap dancing numbers to Black Sabbath's "The Wizard" plus a remake of the pirate classic "Yo Ho Ho It's The Artist Life For Me".
