For I have known them all already, known them all;
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons
The Midnight Soup is an intimate performance meal by Leo Burtin, it starts as a monologue, and in gentle and unpresuming ways opens out to become a conversation.
The Midnight Soup tells the story, of an unremarkable woman, who every day, sat down to meticulously record the facts of her life in a diary, until one early summer day, she chose to end her own life.
The Midnight Soup is the love letter of a grandson to his grandmother, it is also an edible memorial, celebrating a life lived to the rhythm of the seasons.
