A realistic play by Alex Ivanovic, Annabel Soutar, Brett Watson

Four persons meet for the first time at dinner. They have very different political and cultural backgrounds. They energetically discuss the feeling of belonging, gender equality, discriminating language, and religion. Four actors re-enact these conflict-laden conversations. The Canadian theater company Porte Parole explores via long-term projects polarizing atmospheres and the boundaries of paying attention to what other people are saying in a short-tempered society. The audience will also have something to say here.

The project is part of the culture program related to Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2020/2021 and is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Canada with additional support by the Quebec government.

In cooperation with the Festival Theater der Welt Düsseldorf 2021.
