In Bed With Simone (2014)
In Bed With Simone is a filmic play in an hotel room, combining the style of popular series (HBO, Netflix) with location theater, performance and puppetry. As you sit on the bed of a luxuries hotelroom, you watch a movie on the television about a successful young author who travels the world promoting her latest book. With nothing more than her suitcase, Simone moves from hotel room to hotel room all by herself, or at least that is what she thinks…
In Bed With Simone tells the story of a ‘contemporary Simone de Beauvoir meets modern day life career women’, in a Netflix style TV show that you watch from a bed in a hotel room. This play allows the audience to select and watch a the production whenever they want ‘on demand’, rather than having to watch it at a specific broadcast time.
