“Scripted Smalltalk” is a 50 min performance where the audience is reading scripted dialogues. The scripts are mostly about almost nothing, the scripts themselves intermingled with other trivial or existential matters: tv series, common fears in theatrical situations that involve audience participation, boredom and fun, chaos and communication, whatever. There is no action on stage, the choreographer/author distributes scripts and microphones and halfway into the show brings candies and vodka. This performance is “choreography” in the literal sense of the word – writing of the chorus.
