[@ABRONS SERIES] ED ATKINS: A CATCH UPON THE MIRROR

For Performa 19, Ed Atkins will perform a resuscitation of his performance, “A Catch Upon the Mirror”. Very lossy, “A Catch Upon the Mirror” features Atkins’ attempt at an adequate recitation of New York writer Gilbert Sorrentino’s poem “The Morning Roundup” (1971), with songs and histrionics throughout. This is Atkins’ only performance work, and is renamed every time it’s performed. “A Catch Upon the Mirror” burnishes remembrance to maybe a hollow, hateful catharsis; it ends with a choir.
