To Name Herstory uses Kathy Acker’s novel Don Quixote (which was a dream) as a starting point for its investigation. The novel tells the story of a woman who undergoes abortion and decides to take on a different identity as a result of the agony caused by the procedure. She becomes some kind of modern, female Don Quixote who decides to heal society of its capitalist delusion. To Name Herstory endeavours to translate this work to the stage, within a framework of subjectivity and patriarchy.
