Time has fallen asleep in the afternoon sunshine

A group of performers memorize a book of their choice. Together they form a library collection consisting of living books.

Choose a book, and the book takes you to a place in the library, in the cafeteria, or for a walk outside, while reciting its content. The idea for this project comes from the science fiction novel «Fahrenheit 451». It is a future vision of a society where books are forbidden because they are considered dangerous, where happiness must be obtained through an absence of knowledge and individual thought. The practice of learning a book by heart is a continuous process of remembering and forgetting. Perhaps by the time you reach the end you will have forgotten the beginning.

Available books:
