Sleepless is a solo aerial theatre piece of contemporary circus exploring sleep deprivation
Set alongside an eclectic soundscape of performance poetry and baby noise, it is a celebration of motherhood that tackles the very real issue of sleep deprivation through experiences such as breastfeeding, teething and returning to work.
‘It’s ok, you’ll feel better once you’ve got some….DON’T DROP THE BABY...sleep.’
Using the writings taken from diaries and stream of consciousness scribblings of both new mother, Kim Charnock and Co-Director Lorna Meehan, who struggled with sleep deprivation during a time of grief.
Sleepless also combines the experiences of real women and new parents, taking a serious look at the results of sleep deprivation using personal stories and experiences as the narrative.
