‘Everything By My Side’ is a performance installation in public space by the Argentine theatre maker Fernando Rubio.
I was one of the actresses.
In June 2015, at six outdoor locations in the heart of Amsterdam – on the streets, the quaysides and the canals – people can experience a very special encounter with a complete stranger – in bed. Everything by my side (Todo lo que está a mi lado) is a public spectacle yet at the same time an intimate, one-on-one performance. The actress who invites you into the bed, recounts a poetical story about the unfathomable void of loneliness which can suddenly overwhelm you; and about the soothing words, the dreams and beauty which can bring happiness within reach. It’s a cathartic experience for the ‘bedfellow’; and a fascinating, almost surreal spectacle for passers-by.
