Dynasty Handbag

“It’s like an inner-spirit ventriloquism; the exchanges are real, her timing is perfect.”
– Paper Magazine

This year Dynasty Handbag is hosting the family holiday dinner that is sure to be a messy mash up of passive-aggression, fart jokes, personality meltdowners. Everyone has something to bring to the table, and when all become deathly ill, everyone is suspect of bringing in the virus. But who is the motherfucking asshole sibling who would infect everyone? It must be Dynasty…she is the HOST after all. Find out when a family secret is revealed and an antidote must be found… or else!
Using live performance and 4 on-stage projections of family members, all performed by Ms. Handbag, BSMF is a tour de farce of comedic acting skills as well as a film editor’s nightmare.

Jibz Cameron (Dynasty Handbag) is a performance/video artist, musician and actor who lives and works in New York. Her work has been presented internationally from the dirtiest dives to the cleanest art houses and theaters. Dynasty Handbag performances have been heralded by the New York Times as “the funniest and most pitch perfect performance seen in years” and a “crackpot genius” by the Village Voice. She is the recipient of the 2007 Fresh Tracks Artist in Residency Award at Dance Theater Workshop and the 2008 recipient of the Franklin Furnace Fund grant for the performing arts, and the 2010 Mondo Cane! Commission. She is currently an adjunct professor of Performance Composition at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Her second Dynasty Handbag record is due in the spring of 2011 on Lovepump United Records.
