The completely unique and deeply affecting How To Wash A Heart is a story told as a poem, depicting the complex relations that emerge between an immigrant guest and a citizen host.
Drawn from a first performance at the ICA in London in 2019, by using poetry as a mode of communication that is surreal, comic, painful and tender, Kapil is able to express difficult feelings and urgent questions around the limits of inclusion, hospitality and compassion.
A glowing insight into empathy and being human.
