Barbara’s Eyes is a short and witty tale of one year of insomnia in London and Paris in 1984, interrupted by visits to repertory cinemas, French songs and falling in love with the wrong girl.


Can Revolution and the New Romantics, Carry Grant and the Ayatollah all lend a hand to help a desperate man finally close his eyes and sleep?


An interdisciplinary performance piece, using spoken word, projection and music in a small room for a small audience.


Bring a glass of wine or a cup of cocoa (sleeping pills optional).
