Call Cutta In A Box is a strange interactive theater installation where the audience, one at a time, converses with an employee of an Indian call center. Indeed, the production was created by art group Rimini Protokoll in collaboration with the Callcenter Descon Limited in Calcutta. The installation is currently on tour, traveling next to Gronigen, Copenhagen, and Paris. The Guardian's Gideon Lewis-Kraus answered the phone in Dublin. From The Guardian:

She directs my attention to a picture on the far wall of Descon Ltd's headquarters and says that, if I look in the upper right-hand corner by the big X, I can see where her office is, though she is in the back, not near the window. She also tells me that she is three and a half hours ahead of me, so that I should imagine not the partly cloudy sky of the photograph, but an amber sunset.
