The Mèn-Wèl-Bèlle Call Center is going on tour through Tilburg! The only call center with which you want to bèlle will settle on June 12 at special locations in the city: from West to Westpoint. Because what is more fun than a spontaneous conversation with a stranger?
How does it work?
It's simple! On 12 June, the mèn-wèl-bèlle call center will be open for all your conversations. You can use this call center between 14:00 and 22:00. After dialing the number (085-208-5744) you will be connected via a menu to one of the fantastic employees of the Mèn-wèl-bèlle call center!
Who can I call?
Krakers Tilburg will select a group of (un)famous people from Tilburg to call on June 12. These fantastic call center employees are spread over special places throughout Tilburg. Think of: 'Chefke' from the kitchen of Café Berlin, Kees Bril from his house (smallest house in Tilburg) or a Fireman at work.
"Everyone who calls has a choice of different topics they can talk about with the call center employee. This ranges from the royal family to skirt day. For example, senior Jelly Sok chats with someone about the length of a skirt. "Your calves look best when you choose a skirt that falls just over the knee," she tells the caller. "I'm an experienced user of skirts."
About the Krakers (Bregt van Deursen and Lotte van Oudheusden)
With a love for conversation and new encounters, these two young theatre-makers don't like to sit still. Bregt is a true Feyenoord fan and has at least one double appointment in her agenda. She is an activist who wants to discuss every topic with gusto and hates to crack jokes. Lotte is a wannabe-vegetarian ('no, I really start now') and after an attempt to live in Arnhem she moved back to the beautiful 013. Her love for Tilburg is so great that she even had it tattooed.
When they go to a festival together, they immediately lose each other because they prefer to talk about (un)important things with unknown people. When the lack of these uncomfortable strangers became too big, they decided to take matters into their own hands.
This program is part of Krakers Tilburg. Krakers are young Tilburgians with outrageous ideas, idiotic fascinations and ridiculous energy. They stay in Theater De Nieuwe Vorst and filling all corners, cracks, cellars, halls and lawns with outrageous themes, disciplines and ways of thinking.
