NEIGHBOURS PROJECT

frankel leó street | december 2008

 

This one is from our good old days, right before our leader Dóra Halas and her husband started the renovation of their freshly purchased flat. The goal was to make the neighbours accept and understand the various kinds of noise that would pour from the third-floor apartment from that moment on – so we did a performance along the staircases and corridors into the courtyard. The neighbours were afterwards invited into the empty apartment for tea, and it was at this point that one of the families left us a card with the following signature: “Warm regards, Mr and Mrs István Soha and Róza Soha.” (Soha means “never” in Hungarian and we have probably never heard the word as a surname before.) Róza was their 9-month-old baby. So there was our name, right there on the card.
