Can the connection between two strangers be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions? In Mandy Len Catron’s Modern Love essay, “To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This,” she explains how a series of  36 questions followed by four minutes of eye contact can help us connect with anyone in a deep way.
 
Feel free to bring someone you’re just getting to know and try the experiment together. We will be adapting the exercise enabling participants to connect with two different people (randomly chosen for you, unless you request the conversation partner you have come with) over the course of the evening through a mutual question-answer conversation followed by 2-minutes of silent eye contact.
 
The questions can lead to connection, friendship, love, a deeper understanding of another person, or maybe simply a practice and contemplation of conversation and intimacy between humans.
 
Hosted by Salima Stanley-Bhanji (Humainologie) and Nuke Kombian (Kings of Hearts).
