Soggy Glasses, A Homo’s Odyssey
, is 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. Using voiceovers, video interaction, and a giant plush “hero” sandwich, Dynasty Handbag employs the female physical and spiritual body as the terrain for her journey home, in an ultimate Homeric search for her true nature, and she will most likely fail.

Soggy Glasses, A Homo’s Odyssey was originally commissioned by Franklin Furnace for the BAM 2014 Next Wave Festival. Soggy Glasseswas supported by residencies at Yaddo and The MacDowell Colony, and is made possible, in part, by a 2014 LMCC Process Space artist residency (lmcc.net).
