I don’t find a better place to do a performance than a bed. As Ana Matey would say when someone asks her to make a performance work walking: “it is my thing”. I already performed in Intermediae, Matadero, Madrid, a work called “A tapestry extended in all directions” about women and their relation with bed using women experiences -also some man at the end- in bed therefore transforming those experiences into written poems on bed sheet squares I then sewed making a new sheet and covered up myself inside. I currently wish to show my close relation with bed itself, both place of birth, sickness and death and also sex, fun, rest. I will revive some stages of my life in a kind of quick-change game. I will change my clothes under the bed sheets and as I will get out I will recall some special moments of my life. May be three or four times. I still need to go through the details but I already have some thoughts as letting a piece of textile fall down from the balcony and using shower or basin (please let me know if this is possible and windows may be opened). And of course getting into bed.
