THE BED SHOW
THE BED SHOW is a site-specific/site responsive, immersive/participatory talk show devised by Hana Mastrogiacomo, Sean Pollock and Jon Schuta about "bed culture" that is half autobiographical and half found-text. Audience participation is strongly encouraged! Sean and his co-host, Jon, cover everything from bed horror stories, the history of beds, the mattress industry to personal relationships to beds, love, and intimacy. This is not your mother's talk show.
The Bed Show premiered on Friday, June 1st in New York City, with additional shows on June 2nd, June 15th, and June 16th with Pollock and Schuta. In 2019, another rendition of The Bed Show was a part of Title:Point's SalON!: I Am A Beast With Eyes On All Four Sides with Pollock and Emma Howard in Brooklyn, NY.
“We all sleep. We all have lifelong relationships with our beds or where we rest. This is an immersive storytelling experience: part talk show, part sleepover, and all an unforgettable experience. Our show is an intimate, one of a kind, powerful lens into how we see our experiences and relationship to beds, sleep, and intimacy. Weaving together and developing these stories has been a completely unique and exciting process”
