Pick up the Red Phone
Take two beautifully crafted booths and equip each with an old-school red phone with a curly cord. Add a TelePrompTer and a conversation about life and art guided by a playwright, and you get a theatre experience with an intimacy unlike anything you’ve seen before. To launch its latest Micro Performance Series, Boca del Lupo is bringing back Red Phone as part of the Vancouver Writers Fest. This is as micro as it gets, folks: there’s only an audience of two, each in his or her booth, having a 10-minute talk with a complete stranger. Take the leap and connect.
Red Phone is at the Fishbowl on Granville Island from Wednesday to Sunday (October 19 to 23).
