A performance of Mary Walling Blackburn’s “2 of 24 Psychoanalytic Acts: Therapy for the End” will take place this Sunday, May 18 at 5 a.m. at the Gowanus boat launch, located at the river end of 2nd St. (past its intersection with Bond St.), Brooklyn.

In 2 of 24 Psychoanalytic Acts, Sarah Workneh and Abraham Adams perform the roles of psychotherapist and patient, as they listen over headphones to a prerecorded psychotherapy session addressing the fear of ecological collapse and repeat the words as they hear them.

A companion broadside, published by Ugly Duckling Presse, will be distributed.

The performance is approximately one hour, starting promptly at 5:00 a.m. The sun rises at 5:44.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP if you intend to join.

Mary Walling Blackburn is an artist, writer, and the founder of the Anhoek School. Sarah Workneh directs the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Abraham Adams is an editor at Ugly Duckling Presse.
