No talking thanks, I'm eating: Silent Dinner Parties at the Sydney Fringe

I love a good chat, I don't care who you are, on a good day I could pretty much talk the ear off anyone. However, I do get shy sometimes and on the rare occasion I can suffer a bout of social awkwardness- (weird gestures, odd sentences, inappropriate laughing, bringing up Beyonce for no reason) especially in a situation where I don't know anyone.

Then there are the times when I can't be bothered to talk to anyone, I fancy being around people but I just can't be arsed to talk- you know those days right?

I think I may of found the answer to my social awkwardness/butterfly conundrum. - Silent dinner parties. I just booked in for my first silent dinner party experience and I am really really (quietly) excited.

I couldn't resist and just had to make a reservation when I read:

Silent Dinner Parties are a normal dinner party, except it is requested that you, the guests:

1. Please don’t use words or your voice

2. Please don't read or write

3. Try to make as little noise as possible

4. Stay with it for at least 2 hrs

There is no audience, only participants, as we sit around a dinner table in someone’s Sydney home devouring a 3 course feast, you are guaranteed a grand [silent] giggle!

Being hosted as a part of the Sydney Fringe Festival there will be 3 silent dinner parties each held in a secret location (somebody's place) in the Inner West. Sounds mysterious doesn't it.

I just hope that I don't get self conscience or bored- I've been known to make rather loud slurping noises when I eat too, so I'll have to be on my best behaviour I think.

  1. Great idea Amy! I love the concept of this. I might send them an email and hopefully they'll have some space free! :D

  2. I am really looking forward to it! Hopefully we're at the same one and we can not talk to each other all night long :)
