What: Dynasty Handbag will mentally barf out various works, some of which are plucked from longer pieces to create a sampler platter of performance explosion cooked up just for you! Come see Dynasty Handbag as a defective drone, a neglected child who tries to move into with the neighbor, a pledge to a knife wielding girl gang, just to name a few.
