RSVP Today: FREE Fringe Festival Event at Van Pelt Library for UPenn students and staff
(28-AUG-13)

The Quiet Volume by Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells (England)

Enter the strange magic at the heart of the reading experience: In a public library, during regular hours, two audience members sit side-by-side with headphones on. Words whispered and written guide them down an unlikely path through a pile of books.

The Quiet Volume exploits the particular tension common to libraries worldwide; a combination of silence and concentration within which different peoples' experiences of reading unfold. Audience members delve into a deeply internal world, transporting from one reader's sphere into another's.

Two people per show. Sign up with a friend (or request a partner when you register). A new show begins every 15 minutes and runs 60 minutes.

At the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center on:

Tuesday, Sept 10: ongoing from 10am-3pm
Wednesday, Sept 11: ongoing from 10am-3pm
Thursday, Sept 12: ongoing from 10am-3pm
