Refreshing, Thought-provoking

See it if What do we assume of others we barely know? Asking, answering, imagining, responding to series of questions w/ your partner about them & you

Don't see it if No actors; dislike participatory theater; no plot, more theater experience; staring at a stranger's uncomfortable; difficulty reading cards. Read more

The New York Times

"It is a joy; even if it scares you, go. This is a work of inquisitive humanity and profound gentleness, which over the course of an hour buffs away the armor that lets us proceed through our days brusque, numb and antagonistic...It sounds weird, and it was, but 'An Encounter' left me in an altered state, keenly aware of these many people around me whom I did not know, and who seemed so alive with possibility, complexity, depth."

"Such an exercise could be invasive or cringe-inducing. But the cards guide participants so gently through the sessions lasting about 45 minutes, and the communication that they provoke can be so sweet and surprising that it all comes across as a joyful resetting of one’s bearings for being out in the world."
