Naked Stage: Call
Out there, in the depths of archaic phonebooks, there are so many names, surnames and numbers! Who are these people, what is their flesh and blood? How do their lives look like and who is calling their number? What have they eaten for breakfast, where do they go to get their hair-cuts, who do they meet in the elevator and what are they thinking about just before falling asleep?
All kinds of monologues are wittily intertwined with miniature choreographies and eclectic music. Call is a piece about names and numbers, about the interconnected jungle of human lives, about the unique and sometimes bizarre situations people find themselves in. It is a piece about communication, isolation and connection, about the layers and mysteries of the mundane.
Kolektiv Narobov is dedicated to researching and creating live and living art, be it street interventions, theater events, radio shows or concert performances. The important pillars of their artistic work are improvisation and collective work. The performance Call had a premiere in Edmonton back in 2006 and has since then toured Canada, the USA, Germany, France, Belgium, Reunion, the Netherlands and Slovenia. The performance is alive for such a long time precisely because it is constantly changing. It offers enough space to be up-to-date with professional and personal lives of the performing artists and with the time and space we live in. The decision to revive exclusively female names from the phone book is not a coincidence.
