Some Historic, Some Hysteric

directed by Ildiko Nemeth

The Hysterics 

Some Historic/Some Hysteric visits the nexus of desire and madness. The multi-media theater piece, part-entertainment, part-exposition, uses a 19th century method for examining hysteria as the departure point of its theatrical conversation. French psychiatrist Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot uses his patients in a Parisian asylum for case studies in hysteria. Under the doctor's discretion, patients perform in his lecture/demonstration's, isolating and acting out aspects of their disease for a curious audience. Nemeth and Grossman refer to the photographic documentation of these lectures and they stretch the imagery to pull beauty from the grotesque.
