For one day, during the library’s normal opening hours, spectators will be ushered into a hall and invited to lie down, close their eyes and become immersed in a collective tactile experience. Surrounded by blankets, pillows, different kinds of fabric, stones, and other objects, a group of performers will weave a non-verbal narrative in and between bodies using touch and sound. Spectators will hardly recognize the performers’ presence, gestures or movements, with only the “inanimate” elements being experienced as animate. Through this, what the spectator feels and imagines, the states of sleep and wakefulness, will be blurred to enable a different regime of images to appear. Each session can accommodate ten spectators, who are welcome to stay and watch the following session in action.
Thursday 13.00-14.30 hrs, 15.00-16.30 hrs
