In the back of a stationary truck, discover an unlikely bedchamber, where you’re invited into a stranger’s embrace. In a moment of fleeting closeness, audience member and performer enact a fundamental human desire: to hold and be held in the arms of another.

A much-loved signature work originally performed by Norman, Rest Area enters its second decade re-scored for a cast of bodies. Simple and profound, Rest Area is a one-to-one meditation on longing, comfort, and the melancholy eroticism of loneliness.
