created by Robert Softley Gale, Rachel Drazek and Mairi Taylor
produced by Birds of Paradise and Battersea Arts Centre
7 online performances : 26 October – 1 November, 9-10pm
Birds of Paradise and Battersea Arts Centre invite you to take part in an intimate performance with Robert. ‘Come to Bed With Me’ is a conversation, a nightly routine, a shared experience – bedroom to bedroom.
Robert is a disabled performer – he is used to being looked at and to being asked all sorts of questions. This is an invitation to share in moments that are new and real – to exchange with people who might not look or move as you do.
“Come get ready for bed with me. From your bedroom to mine – sharing our intimate spaces and personal moments. We might talk about what’s there and what’s not there – what’s missing. Listen, watch, talk, move with me… it’s up to you.”
Bedrooms are our private spaces that only certain people are allowed to see and fewer still are permitted to occupy. Come to Bed With Me is an invitation to share in moments that are new and real – to exchange with people who might not look or move as you do.
Created by Robert Softley Gale, Rachel Drazek and Mairi Taylor, Come to Bed With Me takes BOP into digital and durational territory that is new for the company. This performance is intimate and private, exploring territory that resonates with us all just now as we navigate the world from our homes.
