We spend one-third of our lives in bed, many of us with our partners. In Bedtime, we explore the different dynamics that happen in this personal space. Not just the usual cliches of intimate encounters, not just sleeping but a lot of life happens at bedtime. For a couple in bed, there is a negotiation of space, of blanket usage and how individuals become a couple or break apart. And for some couples, a new life is born.

The performers are real-life couple Adelene Stanley and John Cheah. Movement was directed by Shou-yi Goh and Young Artist award recipeint, Zhuo Zihao directed the filming and editing.

We invite you to join us on our exploration and think again about how we all truly spend our bedtime.
