An Unusual Meeting Between Strangers at National Theatre Prague

09 February 2021

"No one knows how to do this. Everything is a rehearsal. Life is one big improvisation."


As part of the fourth Prague Crossroads Festival at National Theatre Prague, Netherlands-based ensemble Building Conversation will present its newest experience, Distant Thoughts

The idea is that two people who do not know each other sign up to take part in a telephone conversation. They follow a script, some of which is predetermined, but most of the time leaves a lot of room for your own words and thoughts.

"The script gives you something to hold onto, but also challenges you."

There will be a minimum of 10 participants, and a maxmium of 50. The experience lasts between 45 - 60 minutes and takes place by telephone / Whatsapp.

There are two upcoming dates:

  • 10 February, 6pm
  • 18 February, 9pm
