Head War is a found text performance that pieces together the story of creator Sadie McCarney’s 2013 hospitalization for acute psychosis. Scavenging and rearranging words from the official records of her two-month hospital stay, McCarney has crafted an experience that reclaims sentences written about her as sentences not of illness, but of transformative power. These are her words, now.
An extended version of Head War is available as a chapbook from Frog Hollow Press.
Mature/R – coarse language – mentions of adult content, and description of sexual interference.
