Ant Hampton & Tim Etchells (UK)

The Quiet Volume

13. mars –23. mars 2014

Se dato/tid under praktisk informasjon. Sted: UiO : HumSam-biblioteket i Georg Sverdrups hus

«The Quiet Volume, this small play by Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells leading a spectator into the world of books, is theatre of a very magical kind.» – Berliner Zeitung

 

 

«…Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells’s piece – designed to be played out in the hushed surroundings of reading rooms without disturbing anyone – reminds that these are magic places that can transport you anywhere from a bombed Beirut street to a snow hole.»

– The Guardian

 

«This now of the page is what grips me - the present moment, this one, summoned here with this arrangement of marks/code, ink/pixels, letters and words.»

– Tim Etchells

 

Two audience members sit side-by-side. Taking cues from words both written and whispered they find themselves burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books. The piece exposes the strange magic at the heart of the reading experience, allowing aspects of it we think of as deeply internal to lean out into the surrounding space, and to leak from one reader‘s sphere into another‘s.
