About the Show
I want you to come in, to lie down – to hold me, just for a minute.
Rest Area is the invocation and repetition of a familiar desire and a familiar gesture. In the back of a stationary truck, discover an unlikely bedchamber, where you’re invited into a stranger’s embrace.
In a moment of fleeting closeness, audience member and performer enact a fundamental human desire: to hold and be held in the arms of another.
A much-loved signature work originally performed by Norman themself, Rest Area enters its second decade of life re-scored for a cast of diverse bodies. Simple and profound, Rest Area is a one-to-one meditation on longing, comfort, and the melancholy eroticism of loneliness.
S. J. Norman
