On 26-28 June 2015 (Friday at 8:30 pm, Saturdays and Sunday at 5 pm) Poland’s Zuzanna Kasprzyk, graduate of the Dance Theatre Department in Bytom, Poland (co-choreographer/dramaturge/dancer) and Malaysia’s Ren Xin Lee (co-choreographer/director/dancer) will showcase their joint project B.E.D. (But Everybody Dreams, Big Enough Dreams). The performance is a site-specific work. The audience will journey through the piece. The performance is a series of ?happenings? that unfold in a migratory manner. The site-specific ?happenings? will lead the audience from one point to another, sometimes stationing at one place for a while. At other times, the audience roams, as if in an exhibition gallery. The choreographers will be joined in performance by three other Malaysian performers: dancer Tan Bee Hun, musician/actor Sudarshan Chandra Kumar, and drummer/theatre performer Leow Hui Min. The project is being developed at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre.


The project explores identity loss and/or community dislocation due to urbanisation. Other themes discussed are alternative social functions: questioning typecast expectations that lock on identity markers; social pluralism ? to make sense of dynamic identities in a society where ?multi-? has become a mere construct, instead of plain existence; and construction/demolition/reconstruction that happens in a country, a community, a family, and a person?s daily life.


The project is supported by the Polish Embassy in Kuala Lumpur as part of celebrations marking 250 years of public theatre in Poland.






Not about sleeping.

About dreaming.


Everybody dreams.

What, would a society dream of? If it does?


it does not sleep.


Not about sleeping.

About three very different people ? trying to share a space, finding out how to exist together, and try to dream together.

It is about,



On the way home, they encounter two women dance-makers in a men-ruled world that has forgotten about dancing.


No more sleeping!


Why mattresses?

Mattresses are used as props and sets. At different instances, they are metaphors for:


?        Bed ? where we start our day, and where we end our day: What really values in the time between?

?        Personal (space) vs. shared (space)

?        Private (entities) vs. public (entities)

?        Weight, burden

?        Comfort, pleasure, security, protection, territory, demarcation, barrier, conflict.

?        Building units; home, home country. Dreams.

?        Abandoned items, abandoned dreams

?        Object of attestation. Testimony. Evidence.
