In this video Ant Hampton, one of the creators of The Quiet Volume, shares his insights and observations about the show and tells us how he thinks this production at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library Reading Room will be a truly unique experience. The Quiet Volume is an intimate theatrical experience about books, reading, and the communal experience of the library. Two participants sit side-by-side at tables and don headphones. Taking cues from words both written and whispered in their ears, they find themselves burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books. Performances June 18-28, 2013, as part of the International Festival of Arts & Ideas.
