Good Morning Evening Feelings
April 24th-25th, 2015
Good Morning Evening Feelings with Dynasty Handbag is a live, conceptual, one-hour hybrid morning/late-night/children’s show for adults, hosted by everyone’s favorite no one, Dynasty Handbag. This inspirational hour is designed to help you navigate through the five basic human feelings - fear, anger, grief, sex, dogs - that pop up throughout your day and try to kill you. The show will feature an emotionally stunted musical performance, an unpleasant, non-results based exercise routine, a grief squelching cooking segment, and experimental commercial breaks for imaginary feminist products. Curated by David Everitt Howe for NYPAC.
