It may be the case that we don’t pick up the phone to have a real conversation anymore but boy do we communicate. We’ve made a verb of Facebook, Twitter and text. So much said yet nothing said at all.  If going without some kind of a social media communication tool is a challenge for you, why not shake things up proper and attend a silent dinner party? You get all the best things about a dinner party – a fabulous three-course meal and wine minus the small talk. Well, it’s a little more than that. You do not use words or your voice. There is no reading or writing and stick with it for at least two hours. I foresee a serious case of the giggles. Or more profoundly put by a former guest: “I encourage others to join a silent dinner party simply to exercise the free will to say “I choose” to interact with others even if there are difficulties or misunderstandings”.

16 – 24 Sep. Private Houses around the Inner West. $30. Email honi@hedonics.com.au, 0413 375 619, sydneyfringefestival.org.au
