The Sleep Project


A bedtime story about sleep, but there is, or should be, no sleep involved! A startlingly original take on the universal experiences of sleep and insomnia, one actor performs a story for an audience of one, as they share the same bed. The Sleep Project is the closest you’ll ever get to an actor, staring into their eyes and hearing them breathe.

It’s a tiny little sliver of a performance, lasting only a few minutes and imparting the same sort of fleeting yet haunting thoughts that occupy that hallucinatory territory between waking and sleep.”
