ATSA: While having Soup – poetic portraits

Actually, when was it last that the street was a place to talk to each other and discuss things? Really looking at each other whilst talking, no ‘likes’ or ‘dislikes’ but accompanied by the will to listen properly to the other person while seeking to understand? The production “While having Soup” from Canada offers a special opportunity that should be seized. Passers-by can spend 20 minutes discussing with another person a particular topic that currently moves the city and its people, whilst having a plate of soup. And afterwards to sum up in just one sentence or even one word what had been the content of their conversation. Truly a challenge – but lots of people in Graz did go for it.
