This PMA show is going to be Jung heavy, believe that. And while this has been practically flogged to death, it will be a repudiation of the Freudian construct of superego, ego and id. Believe that, too.
I'm rooted in the beginnings of psychology and psychiatry for this show. I'm feeling out how to present Philadelphia as it's own distinct character, without over anthropomorphizing it. And I'm feeling out Jung's ideas about the state as "a quasi-animate personality" and working out the distinctions between "state" and "place" in term of Philadelphia. Philadelphia is, of course, both "state" and "place." And for me it's also "home." There's important distinctions among these definitions of Philadelphia and I'm working on seeing all of them. Personal history, community history, national history are always a little fluid in Philadelphia.
