Therapy As Performance™

“Therapy As Performance”. What’s that?

It’s performance artist Leeny Sack’s new interdisciplinary performance experiment. Live therapy. Unscripted. Live video. No Fourth Wall.

On Friday, January 19th at 7pm, two (actual) public therapy sessions will be presented consecutively, conducted by Guest Therapists Kate Halliday and Jeff Collins, with Leeny Sack as the Constant Client. Experimental video artist Rachel Ferro will live-compose and live-project hyper close-ups of both the client and the therapists throughout. Dr. Sara Warner will speak and lead the post-event discussion. Moose, Leeny’s ESA, will appear as Himself. The (acknowledged) presence of the audience will itself generate content and meaning. The idea is to witness multiple sessions and experience how a Self constructs and deconstructs in the presence of different therapists and audiences.

“… the tension between the public and private. How far do you go?”
– Dr. James Hillman, Archetypal Psychologist
