An exploration of the word Hysteria and the behaviour the word enabled patriarchal systems to overlook and justify as far back as ancient Egypt. With magic tricks and a performer dancing in a box throughout the duration of the show

"Ancient Egypt 'wandering womb' theory first recorded

1518 - Hundreds of people dance uncontrollably on the streets of Strasbourg

1877 - Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot gives demonstrations

of hypnosis on female 'hysterics' in Paris

2019 -You sense an exploration of medical & theatrical storytelling that transcends time... you feel a sensation that can only be described as an uncontrollable urge... you book your ticket..."
