Happy Waiting

The Hotline for the Art of Waiting

Happy Waiting is an interactive theatrical installation for festivals and events.

Your guests dial a telephone number at a specially designed stop. This takes them to an interactive telephone radio play on the subject of waiting and, at the touch of a button, they are connected to a personal waiting consultant who helps them to wait in a live telephone call.

You will receive a link to a Happy Waiting App via text message, where you can expect more audio and video content on the art of waiting.

You can relax in a chill-out area next to the installation and read the book “Schöner Warten” (in German). Or you can write a postcard, which will be delivered after three, six or twelve months. A letterbox is available.

The hotline menu offers numerous options.

>>> Having a break and “wait” for yourself
>>> Make a phone call to your personal waiting advisor
>>> Have a link for the waiting app sent to you
>>> Tips on how to use your time efficiently
>>> Wasting time

Everything comes to a good end for those who can wait!

A production of “Servicepioniere” and “foolpool”.

Many thanks to the Cultural Office of Paderborn and the Cultural Office of the City of Schwerte for their support in the development of the project
