The Quiet Volume is a performance for two at a time, exploiting the particular tension of libraries, a combination of silence and concentration, within which different people’s experiences of reading unfold.
Taking cues from words both written and whispered, the participants find themselves burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books leaking from one reader’s sphere into another’s.
Performance slots were available for two people at a time every half hour from 12pm – 6pm on Friday 3 July and 10am – 6pm on Saturday 4 July on a first come, first served basis (running time 1 hour).
The Quiet Volume was kindly supported by the Test Valley Arts Foundation and Oxfam Books & Music Shop, Parchment Street, Winchester.
