In December, The Quiet Volume, the Autoteatro performance - reading experience by British artists Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells, continues at the SNFCC.

The term “Autoteatro” describes a series of small-scale performances – specially designed for specific spaces – that come to life with the participation of members of the audience.

A combination of silence and concentration, The Quiet Volume 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.

Having been performed in 12 countries to date, The Quiet Volume creates a unique experience for library visitors/readers and explores the particular tension common to any library worldwide.

In the second floor of National Greek Library Reading Room, two participants, seated at a table, have headphones on, with a red and a yellow notebook and a few volumes of books before them. As they hear whispered cues on their headphones, they silently read excerpts from the small stack of books.

The Greek version of The Quiet Volume was especially produced by Ant Hampton to be performed at the SNFCC.
