This text is a collection of fragments of conversations that happened in Beirut, February 2019, whilst attaneding a seminar on sound and community at the American University. The fragments recorded conversations that happened inside the campus but also outside the campus in the community, in the bar over a beer, and whilst walking. The spaces between the fragments allow for another narrative to appear outwith the dominant voice of the American insitiution. The text was performed as a live reading at Zoukak Theatre Beirut, where it was live translated into Arabic, Dutch, French, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Hindi by the participants and audience.
