Bed Op: Dark Interiors is the second installment of a collaborative performance art work created and performed by Jake-Ann Jones and Cynthia Oliver. The ongoing funky psychodrama of two urban black women dealing with their inner demons and outer joys, fears and dilemmas, Bed Op expresses the daily challenge these women face to either make that trek out of bed into the outer world, or succumb to the internal dialogue with fantasy shadow partner and stay. The first installment, BEDOP: Windowdance was performed at the African-American Performance Art Festival at Aaron Davis Hall in 1997. BedOp: Dark Interiors was read at the TriBeCa Performing Arts Center in November 1998, as part of their Page To Stage Series.
