The Hysterical Alphabet: Tonight!

Posted on November 7

Hysterical historia. Historical hysteria. Tonight at 7pm, join CWHC’s Terri Kapsalis as the ABCs are seized by a convulsive fit in a free performance of The Hysterical Alphabet. Each letter introduces an episode directly from the hidden histories of the “wandering womb” through carefully crafted text, image, and sound performance. 

Backed by Danny Thompson’s disquieting film collages and John Corbett’s vinyl manipulations, The Hysterical Alphabet tracks centuries of female malady, disproving the theory that time heals all wombs.

The event is at UChicago’s Logan Center Performance Hall at 915 E. 60th street. Admission is free, but reservations are strongly recommended for priority seating. Please call 773-702-ARTS (2787) for tickets, or visit the UChicago Arts Box Office
