I Hide in Bathrooms | Adelaide Festival 2024
Absurd and darkly funny, I Hide in Bathrooms is a revealing meditation on mortality and romance from performance artist Astrid Pill.
Working with long-term collaborators and experimental theatre-makers, including co-devisors Ingrid Voorendt, Zoë Barry and Jason Sweeney, Astrid Pill draws on real experiences to create a work that fuses fiction with autobiography. I Hide in Bathrooms reflects on the experience of losing an intimate partner, falling for someone whose partner has passed away and traversing a relationship while dying. Shifting between these points of view, a woman addresses her romantic delusions, sense of mortality and capacity for hope.
Premiering at Adelaide Festival and presented by Vitalstatistix as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations, I Hide in Bathrooms is a funny and deeply moving work about the relationships between lovers – dead and alive.
