About the Event

Kaivalya Plays presents


LIFELINE 99 99

An interactive play that takes place on the phone.


"An example of how theatre has adapted to and thrived in socially distanced times" - Mint Lounge (read more at bit.ly/9999mintlounge)


"Lifeline 99 99 shines as an experimental art practice among the evolving theatre explorations in the Indian sub-continent. This is one phone call you definitely do not want to miss." - Firstpost (read more at bit.ly/9999firstpost)


"(Lifeline 99 99) stands out as one of the more innovative forms of theatre which have mushroomed in the post-Covid, socially distanced era." - The Daily Guardian (read more at bit.ly/9999dailyguardian)


"Lifeline 99 99 is a one-of-a-kind play that blends Interactive Voice Response Service (IVRS) technology with live storytelling over the phone." - Mid Day India (read more at bit.ly/9999-midday)


"Creative expressions find a way even in the toughest of times. One example is Lifeline 99 99, an interactive play, by Delhi-based Kaivalya Plays, that takes place over a phone call." - New Indian Express (read more at bit.ly/9999indianexpress)


About The Show

Lifeline 99 99 is an absurd telephone line that interrogates the greed and alienation of human experiences. The audience calls a phone number, where they hear an IVRS voice that asks them certain questions and subsequently connects them to any one of the five fictional experiences available – a one on one conversation – a conflicted sex chat operator or an aggrieved idealist or a dude alien or a dead insurance agent or art itself, personified


However, do not mistake Lifeline 99 99 to be a service helpline, my friend. It won't serve to your excessive wants; it will give you a glimpse at human experiences that will not be replicated. In the thirty minutes of conversation, if you listen carefully, maybe you can understand the fate of humanity.


LIFELINE 99 99 is an innovative piece of interactive theatre currently available for audiences in India.
