Red Phone on tour to High Performance Rodeo and beyond in 2018!
A conversation you won’t soon forget!
Concept by Sherry J Yoon
Designed by Jay Dodge
Technology by Carey Dodge
With scripts by Yvette Nolan, Karen Hines, Tara Beagan, Sharon Thesen, Hiro Kanagawa, Marcus Youssef, Ivan Coyote, Leanna Brodie, Shawn Macdonald, Jay Dodge, and Sherry Yoon.
We are asking Canadian playwrights and screenwriters the question: what is the most urgent conversation you think everyone should be having?
Then, we’re asking them to write it.
And, asking you to have it.
Conceived by Sherry Yoon and designed by Jay Dodge, with technology by Carey Dodge, Red Phone is a conversation that you will not soon forget. Part theatre show and part social intervention, Red Phone is an audience-to-audience performance that utilizes the intimacy of a phone call and the technology of a teleprompter to introduce strangers to each other. The two audience members are then guided through a conversation about life, art and their surroundings.
The experience takes place between two beautifully-crafted, fully enclosed phone booths outfitted with a curly corded, red phone and an integrated teleprompter. An operator prompts two participants to engage in a conversation written by a Canadian playwright. Red Phone is a one-of-a-kind performance where anyone can engage in some of the most urgent, touching and uplifting conversations that prominent Canadian writers think we should all be having.
SHOW DURATION: 10 minutes. As only two audience members are allowed at a time, please note you may expect a wait for your turn.
