Club of Opportunities

Row, row, row, your boat 
Gently down the stream  
Celery, celery, celery, celery 
Life is but a dream  

Welcome to the Club of Opportunities: a temporary new world in the middle of your brain. 
 
STRIKE X! 
 
The Club appears and disappears without warning. Inside the Club, earthly laws don’t apply. No two Clubs are ever the same. This time warp is just a blip on the map in an unfamiliar space, one step outside your comfort zone. 
 
STRIKE XX!  
 
The gateway to the Club opens up inside a bowling alley in Prague’s Žižkov neighborhood. Try your luck, and navigate through the cloud of cigarette smoke that’s settled into every crevice of this neon-lit wormhole.  
 
STRIKE XXX! 
 
Are you winning or losing? 
 

The Club offers various scenarios to interact with. In the first room, Kamil Nábělek lectures on the Ontology of celery and its impact on the theories of games. During the lecture, Kamil removes the individual celery pieces from the root, and prepares fresh celery juice, which he serves to the visitors. In the second room, the voice of an animated chipmunk transforms visitors into performers while encouraging them to imagine new opportunities for themselves. At the bar, Michal Šupák’s live piano rendition of Rihanna’s We Found Love in a Hopeless Place can be heard.
