A night of weirdo lezzie performance! The Sunland Dancers open the show, The Little Vamp (a vampire/clown/silent film star) brings her historical phantasy to Hollywood (err.. Pieter); And Dynasty Handbag performs some new “music” including a Nashville (season 2) inspired country ballad. Who curated this mess?

Dynasty Handbag is gonna experiment on you!  Come see some new “music” by your favorite ugly stepsssistir, HITS INCLUDE a Nashville (season 2)  inspired cock sucking country ballad and a song that will make you understand that whistling is singing but better shaped!

The Little Vamp goes to Hollywood! Adapted material from Yanow’s solo performance, Silent Film. This historical phantasy follows the Little Vamp, (a vampire/clown/silent-film-star), and her struggles with a mysterious, melancholic fog – a disconnection from herself. Drawing from silent cinema’s physicality and visual language, early Hollywood lesbian legends, classic phantom stories, and Yanow’s own experiences as a child actor, the piece illuminates “ghosts” of things unseen, unheard or unfelt in both personal family mythology and queer/feminist history.
