What do we do with all these books? Books is a performance with and about books. In collaboration with four performers, director Patrick Blenkarn uses books and bodies to sculpt an encounter of ideas ― chaos, order, labour, devotion, knowledge, and consumption. Mixing the durational and the visceral, Books opens a space for the spectator to witness and experience the all-too-human attempt to pursue and preserve stories and sense.
