Relay-Interview at Do Tank / Social Fictions in Munich




Relay-Interview is a ridiculously simple game for having unexpected conversations. It involves asking and answering spontaneous questions that are loosely based around one or several themes chosen before the game starts. The way it works is: There are two chairs in the middle of the room. Person A and Person B sit in the chairs. A asks B a question. When B is finished answering the question he or she gets up, leaving the chair vacant. At that point anyone else in the room can sit down in the empty chair and ask A a question. When A is finished answering he or she stands up and leaves the chair vacant. The game goes on like this for any length of time and with any number of people. It is an attempt to have genuine, surprising exchanges within a performance situation. And to find out what we think, how we think about it and what we most want to know.

"...to find out what we think, how we think about it and what we most want to know." Perfect. Thanks, JW.
