Dear Friends,

If anybody sees any photos of us from that 82 Great Eastern Street gig on Saturday: we didn't know about the Hitler thing. Capiche? We didn't know he was there.

Now we have that cleared up, here's a little treat for you -earlier this afternoon when planning 'Sh!t Theatre present: SH!T THEATRE IN BED' for our upcoming tour of the North, Louise and I came across this. Look how awesome we sound! ..

We are looking to re-locate our political material from the traditional confines of the theatrical performance space, to the highly-charged, historically significant location of the bed-in.
We feel we want to take the step towards becoming actively political with our work and combining arts & activism, as opposed to merely discussing politics through our work.
Additionally, we feel the very aesthetic of the bed would lend itself to the surreal quality of our performance art.
This action is important to us politically and personally. As feminist performance artists, we feel the domestic space of the bed is one which can be used to question and subvert. The bed would also serve to highlight the feminist content of our performance and put the queer elements of our work in a domestic context - a context in which the LGBT community is rarely portrayed in the media.
Personally, we would also be delighted to take part in an anti-violence action in the manner of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, of whom we are fans.

..You're welcome.



P.S Here are some pics from our Sh!t Theatre Free School installation. Enjoy them as you bask in awesomeness of our bed-in spiel.
