Sam Max

Twin Size Beds (2019)

  • Full Length

Spare and raw, Twin Size Beds is a deeply personal account of sexual assault disguised as a concert. Sam’s confessional utilizes original music, vocal looping technology, scripted text, and a deceptively simple stage design to reflect the complex emotional states that encompass the moment of assault and the reverberations thereafter. The result is a meditation on abuse, masculinity, and the performance of trauma. 

This performance premiered at The Public’s Under the Radar Festival (2019). It was also presented in various versions at The Museum of Sex, Joe’s Pub, and Loading Dock Theater, among others.
