Angélica Negrón presents "Isterica"

with Muriel Louveau and Emily Marie Pope

6:30pm doors • 7:30pm show


Composer/multi-instrumentalist Angélica Negrón, one of Paste Magazine’s “20 most innovative musicians working today”, joins forces with singer/composer Muriel Louveau and dancer/choreographer Emily Marie Pope for a collaborative work that explores the historical and sociocultural dynamics of hysteria.

Isterica delves deep into the history and stories around hysteria. From the Hippocratic notion that hysteria was caused by the uterus wandering around the woman’s body, to the Freudian notion that it was the result of repressed memories of sexual trauma, Isterica is a compelling exploration of perceptions around gender, the transgressive nature of the female form, and the emancipation of female sexuality.

The performance will be followed by a talk with psychoanalyst Paola Mieli and the artists.
