“The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other” to take Skidmore’s Main Stage Nov 22-24, Dec 5-8
Peter Handke’s play, “The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other,” will take Skidmore’s main stage November 22 – November 24th, and again December 5 – December 8, with matinee performances on Sundays at 2 pm.
Directed by Phil Soltanoff, the play will take the main stage at the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theatre on the Skidmore College campus.
Some years ago, playwright Peter Handke was sitting in a town square watching people come and go. Suddenly men carrying a coffin emerged from a house and transformed the square into a stage, lending each vignette that followed – a woman walking her dog, a couple having an argument, a man jogging – special meaning. Inspired by this experience, “The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other” is a play without words, narrated by music and animated by unspoken interaction It has 450 characters. A thought provoking and multi-media experience, this performance will be physical and full of joie de vivre.
