The Bed Show is a site-specific, immersive 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.
"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 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". - Hana Mastrogiacomo
