September 2013 – May 2014 / NKW Wiesbaden /
As a continuation to the invitation by Annette Krauss as part of her Follow Fluxus stipend, Read-in will develop a score and choreography for ‘Ein Stück für die Bibliothek’ (Library piece) together with the Wiesbaden Boys Choir and the music class of the Oranienschool Wiesbaden (both with the guidance of Roman Twardy), as well as in collaboration with the University-State Library RheinMain, Wiesbaden.
‘Ein Stück für die Bibliothek’ is activated by the registers of silence in the library and engages the potential of silent reading as a collective moment. It investigates how this silence is constituted thought the physicality of reading, library etiquette, the books being read, architecture, as well as the different categorizations within the library. The rehearsals as well as performance of the piece will happen during public library hours.
