A question about two theater events held by the Public Theatre during the pandemic

During the pandemic, I participated in two sort-of plays held by the Public theatre. The first was one where I called a number at a certain time, and someone else was participating, too. We took turns answering robotic questions on a lot of varied subjects, including on what physical picture we were getting of the other person. In the second play, people arrived at the Public theater at a designated time and were sent in pairs to sit opposite each other at a desk (separated by plexiglass, and we were masked). We turned up numbered cards and did whatever the cards said and it did create an interesting intimacy.
My question is, can anyone remember the name of these two events and perhaps the creator behind them? I'm going to Joe's Pub on Wednesday and I haven't been there since participating in the two-person even a couple of years ago. Thanks!
