How to do politics about what is non predictable…?
Connectivity is what fuels staging cities to gather groups interested to participate in potentially hazardous conversations “staging cities” specializes in exploring conflictive situations and detecting hot spots in cities using the “chatheater” device to research for potential scenarios.

To “stage” means for the chatheater to assembly a collective literary and visual process. This implies the gathering of people by many different levels of association that requires teaming and exploring group’s dynamics.
So, in this way, the chatheater conduces a staging process, where to simulate the public is also a provocation.

Chatheater gives to their characters a virtual and exploratory mandate that influxes a public process. Which thinks the collective about these actors? What the participants think trough the point of view of the many actors involved in the scenario?
