Reading of YOUR HEALING IS KILLING ME by Virginia Grise

  • Roosevelt Hall Extension at Brooklyn College 2950 Bedford Avenue Room 307 Brooklyn, NY, 11210 United States (map)

"Your Healing is Killing Me" is a performance manifesto that seeks to replace individual self-care with collective self-defense. One artist’s reflections on living with post-traumatic stress disorder, ansia, and eczema in the new age of trigger warnings, the master cleanse, and Kickstarter-funded self-care. Based on lessons learned in San Antonio free health clinics and New York acupuncture schools; from the treatments and consejos of curanderas, abortion doctors, Marxist artists, community health workers, and bourgie dermatologists. 

The New Works Brooklyn festival will be held in Room 307 of Roosevelt Hall Extension on the campus of Brooklyn College. No reservations required; suggested donation is $5.

Roosevelt Hall Extension is at 2950 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY (Flatbush Avenue stop on the
2 and 5 train). For further information, visit the Department of Theater Web page at
