Kyoko Scholiers had a telephone booth travel around for a year. She took it to prisoners, refugees, the homeless, prostitutes, patients, and the unlucky. She took it to children and young people who grew up without a mother or father. To (ex-)sect members, hermits, monks, and loners of all kinds. Throughout the year, Kyoko spoke to each of them for one hour during every season. This resulted in a total of new fewer than 240 hours of telephone conversations. During Misconnected, you enter the phonebooth yourself and you hear five-minute audio fragments. Just briefly, you witness the problems and complaints that one caller told Scholiers over the course of that year.

• Kyoko Scholiers is an actress and theatremaker. With Ruth Becquart, she created the installation BRIEF, which won the Dutch Dioraphte Prize. Misconnected will be staged during the TheatreFestival 2020.

The Question

Hoe werkt de tijd in op onze fragiliteit en ons vreemde vermogen om na iedere mokerslag weer recht te krabbelen?
