Why do we live as if we were islands? We speak the same language and live in the same city, but are still unable to understand one another. One beautiful Sunday, a "nobody" tries to talk to a "somebody" in a park. What happens then? Is there a place for compassion in everyday life? What does it mean to be compassionate in a world that is becoming increasingly inhumane? The play makes us think about how our ideals — or lack thereof — shape our lives.

The play is dedicated to the Indian author and Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore. Written and directed by Rajaditya Banerjee. Music: Daniel Feiring. Actors: Rajaditya Banerjee & Filip Wilkinson.

Duration apx 60 min. Language: english. Age limit 14 yrs. Tickets á 5 € at the door 1 h before.
