The Quiet Volume


April 30, 2013

The Quiet Volume, a collaboration between Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells, exposes the strange magic at the heart of the reading experience. A self-generated and ‘automatic’ performance, Autoteatro, for two at a time experienced in the reading room of a library, two audience members sit side-by-side taking cues from words both written and whispered – via an iPod and headphones – and find themselves burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books. Available in English and Spanish. Co-presented by Performance Space 122 and PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature

Single Tickets $10. For an audience of two; tickets can be purchased individually or in pairs.

Please arrive 10 minutes before your ticketed time.

Duration: 55 minutes – 1 hour

This event takes place in the Schomburg Center's Jean Hustson Blackwell Research and Reference Reading Room.
