The Quiet Volume
Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells (England)

"A drama of turning pages, pointing fingers, and eerily drifting thoughts."
Jennifer Schuessler, The New York Times

"I knew the piece would be an attempt to listen to what's going on in our heads when we read—what exactly is happening during silent reading."
Ant Hampton
