My Name is B.
x July 30
My name is B and tonight I will turn twenty one.
They locked me up in here, my private theatre.
They say that I am mad.
I want what I want, and I want it now.
My Name is B is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Red Shoes and by the case of Anna O. Anna O was the pseudonym of a patient of Josef Breuer, who published her case study in his book Studies on Hysteria, written in collaboration with Sigmund Freud. This striking performance looking at obsession, celebrity and endurance was created during the MA in Performance Making at Goldsmiths, University of London by Emma Berentsen, Umit Erim, Anthony Keigher and Tiffany Murphy.
Stay tuned for upcoming showings of My Name is B in London and the UK.
