Convent Calling!

21 November, 2020, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This is an online event.

A verbatim play about Indonesian nuns.

We’ve all entered new worlds: suddenly living in intimate quarters with a few other people, trying to reconstruct a good life together despite the daily friction of personal differences. For Indonesian nuns, this situation is not an exception but a way of life. This virtual theatre and dance performance offers a glimpse into their world, including the cultural, moral, and emotional aspects of pursuing the good life together.

Built entirely from interviews and conversations with Indonesian nuns and augmented live by excerpts from audience members’ own stories, this performance experiments with drama as a way to bridge distant people and enter new worlds. Discover what drives women to become nuns, laugh with them as they use drama to overcome their differences, find out what it’s like to have your own words performed live, and add your own experiences to that most human of stories: building a good life in the company of others.
