Personal outpourings, modern dance, drums and free jazz sounds merge in this experimental portrait of Cape Town and four of its inhabitants. It deals not only with everyday life in colourful South Africa, but also with the importance of style and fashion, with losing oneself, speaking the right language and escaping the grind of work and love. The interviewees are calmly sitting on a roof, on a fridge, under a hair drier or with a cup of coffee on a cliff. The dancers, too, contribute to the unusual and often witty composition, giving the city the allure of a contemporary stage scene.
Dance tells a new story, asks new questions, and above all, moves. Cape Town Soup stays far from the stock formulas of the problem film.
