“…I spent the entire day on the terrace of a café in a little square watching life pass by; the hustle and bustle, the milling of tourists, natives and workers. And none of the people knew anything of each other…” – Peter Handke, 1992

Have you ever watched strangers on the street and wondered what their lives might be like? What are the stories behind their actions and movements? And how might you be connected to them in this great big world? In 1992, experimental Austrian dramatist Peter Handke (Offending the Audience, Wings of Desire) premiered The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other, a one-act wordless play about the things that happen in a day at an unspecified town square. The 105-minute piece, which consisted of 450 characters played by 27 actors doing absurd actions and movements, was a phenomenological exercise in the first-person experience: people-watching. In this production, dancer-choreographer Raka Maitra takes inspiration from Handke’s landmark work to the railway platform, melding dance and theatre into a series of wordless movements based on everyday gestures, filled with strong imagery and fleeting glimpses of stories.
