This 2019 Gradiva Award winning performance is a dramatic retelling of an important period in early psychoanalytic history and addresses the pivotal role played by female analyst, Sabina Speilrein. The goal, first and foremost, is to accurately represent Sabina Spielrein and her neglected psychoanalytic contributions. The performance is based upon painstaking research of the letters of Spielrein, Freud and Jung, Spielrein’s diaries and papers, as well as other biographical sources. In addition, the performance traces her remarkable and tragic life story, and clarifies the myths that surround her, and her complex relationships with Freud and Jung. In doing so, my mission is to expand others’ knowledge of important, and often neglected women in our history by bringing them alive onstage. Careful scholarship, of late, refutes the pop culture tale of Spielrein, and allows for this nuanced portrayal of a remarkable, undervalued  figure in psychoanalysis.
