PRET A CHANTER™
The idea of Pret a Chanter is really simple.
It is a cafe where all communication must be done in any other form of vocalisation apart from A CHANTER is a real time opera.It is also an attempt at a new form of communication,society,economy and politics through song!

CAFE MANIFESTO
1. NO SPEAKING. ONLY VOCALISATIONS OTHER THAN SPEAKING ARE ALLOWED.

2. THE NUMBER 2 IS NOT ALLOWED.

3. IN THIS CAFE, SPEAKING IS CONSIDERED TO BE ANTISOCIAL. THOUGHTS EXPRESSED IN SPEECH ARE CONSIDERED TO BE AS TOXIC AS SMOKE FUMES SO FOR THIS REASON SPEAKERS WILL BE ASKED TO STAND OUTSIDE UNTIL THEY ARE FINISHED.

4. ALL LANGUAGES REAL AND IMAGINED ARE WELCOME.

5. ALL FORMS OF VOCALISATION ARE WELCOME. THIS INCLUDES WHISTLES, GROANS, BARKS ( AND ANIMAL SOUNDS OF ALL DESCRIPTIONS BOTH REAL AND IMAGINED) BURPS, GRUNTS, ULULATIONS, SNORES, VOCAL MULTIPHONICS, OVERTONES, MOANS AND YODELS.

6. PRICES FOR FOOD AND DRINK ARE SET ACCORDING TO CREATIVITY.
7. IN THIS CAFE YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE REAL TIME PERFORMERS IN LORE LIXENBERG'S REAL TIME COMPOSITION 'PRET A CHANTER'.

8. NO PRE COMPOSED SONGS ARE ALLOWED AT ALL.

ARE ON THE RIGHT.

10. ABSOLUTELY NO SPEAKING IN THE TOILET, YOU WILL LET OFF THE ANTI SPEAK DETECTOR.

Look out for the PRET A CHANTER guerilla coffee trolley,appearing in London during the first 10 days of March... outside Pret a Manger..... where the same rules will apply.
