Bed-In at the Bluecoat; Sh!t Theatre presents Sh!t Theatre

Here is a blog from Booise (thats Becca and Louise who are Sh!t Theatre) about their Bed-In

A Sh!t Endorsement.

We're back from Liverpool! Many thanks to Rajat and his flatmates/ floor, to The Bluecoat and to Yoko Ono. I'm sure you allll watched us on the live web-feed-thing, so no need to go into details, but the bed-in was a really interesting experience and the start of a new experiment with democracy in performance which we look forward to developing. It was also the second time we have come up against censorship, only this time they had no problem with the burqas and dead babies. Just the word 'sh!t', which we weren't even allowed to write down. In a gallery. On a piece of paper. Hardcore!

We also used the opportunity to start work on two new pieces, live in front of the Bed-in crowd! ("crowd"). One is the much-anticipated 'Christian AIDS' concept which will possibly be previewed this Wednesday at the 'Musical Extravaganza for World AIDS Day' at The Stockwell Grosvenor, the other is about the breaking news that Colin Firth will be editing BBC Radio 4's Today Show over the festive season. And how you won't be able to see his lovely eyes through the radio (Disclaimer: you can see his lovely eyes if you watch the live web-feed-thing of BBC Radio 4's Today Show). It's a winner.
