The ABCs are seized by a convulsive fit in Terri Kapsalis' "The Hysterical Alphabet," each letter introducing an episode direct from the annals of medical lore. Backed by Danny Thompson's disquieting film collages and John Corbett's vinyl manipulations, "The Hysterical Alphabet" explores a 4,000-year history that deeply inflects our contemporary ideas about gender and illness.
