AMERICANA PSYCHOBABBLE
or, my favorite way to die right now in this room

Created + Performed by Alexandra Tatarsky
Co-direction/dramaturgy by Meryl Sands

A delirious anti-narrative of American emptiness and doomsday discoveries -- part exorcism and part enema! With styrofoam wings, x-mas lights, and ketchup.

"Like Phyllis Diller meets Artaud!" (Fred Cisterna)

“If Kellyanne Conway woke up from a coma after overdosing on sleeping pills and reading too much Gertrude Stein!” (Justin Cooper)

"One of the sharpest commentaries on this election I've encountered (and I've waded through quite a few)!” (Eric Levitz, NY Mag)

"You will laugh in spite of your habitual tendency to keep yourself in the controlled consciousness that you call your Self, transcending Self you will be transported to the True Self State of Oneness with Hilarity to Serenity... you will also find me and many other lost souls finding them Selves too!” (my dad)

***
Born in response to a photograph of fingernails painted with the American flag -- and developed while performing absurdist stand-up and doing anti-Trump work across the US and Mexico in late 2016 -- AMERICANA PSYCHOBABBLE tries to figure out how we can keep going with energy and humor even as we feel paralyzed by anxiety and despair.
