Too Day (2017)

Over the course of 3 hours, Call Your Mom welcomes groups of 4 randomly selected participants to join in the rituals of Too Day, the only holiday celebrated solely amongst strangers. Audience members watch and listen as we read from The Book of Too Day, written by Call Your Mom and bound in collaboration with Press Press. We lead them through rituals that celebrate how little they know one another. They choose an alter ego, switch ego crowns with a New Best Stranger, whisper secrets into pears, smush their faces together on opposite sides of a window pane, share encounters that are not their own, eat secrets they will never know. They do not get to know each other any better than they did before.

This performance took place at the 23rd Annual Cucalorus Festival in Wilmington, NC.
