Event Details

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 phenomelogical exercise in the first-person experience: people-watching.

In Raka Maitra’s latest production, the dancer-choreographer 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.
