A PERFORMANCE ART DOUBLE-BILL
From March 30 to April 1, PS122’s Schoolhouse Roxx Series presents a double bill of dangerous women. Internationally known performance artist Nao Bustamante will be performing her new work, entitled Hero and rising downtown art star Dynasty Handbag brings her own peculiar blend of music and deranged monologue to the PS122 stage.
Nao Bustamante is an internationally known performance artist originating from the San Joaquin Valley of California. Her work encompasses performance art, sculpture, installation, video, pop music and experimental rips in time.
Hero works live performance, Video projection, and karaoke. Bustamante’s character transforms, via video, from a gentle princess who has lost her puppy in a lush fall forest into an icy nefarious hag trudging through the snow.
Dynasty Handbag is the one woman music/comedy/performance/meltdown portable electro-ballad vehicle of Jibz Cameron (of the indie rock bands Dynasty, The Roofies, Camp Winnarainbow). Originally from San Francisco, in 2005 she relocated to NYC to escape an obsessed prisoner pen pal. Within 5 months, with a little hard work and a lot of heart, she was crowned Miss Lower East Side. On stage Cameron performs with a backing track containing original songs and dialogues of her innermost personal thoughts and horrible feelings.
