It’s 4:18 in the morning, seven "perfect strangers" are not sleeping. They can't. They live in seven flats in the same street somewhere in London but they don't know each other. This night, a storm will maybe change their lives.

Kae Tempest writes about them, reveals them, tries to describe what keeps them awake. Then begins a path to discover their humanities. With all the sweetness and power of their words, Kae Tempest invites us to get closer to them and asks us to discover the ties that unite them.




R&D Evreux January 2024

"Seven doors to seven flats open at the same time

and light the raining pavement.


Seven broken hearts

Seven empty faces

Heading out of doors :

Here's our seven perfect strangers."
