UK-based artist Ant Hampton in collaboration with Tim Etchells explore a new type of automatic, self-generating performance (Autoteatro) in two New York premieres co-presented by Performance Space 122 and the PEN World Voices Festival:

The Quiet Volume - Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells -

April 29 - May 5 - NYU Bobst Library | 70 Washington Square S | NYC - Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture | 515 Malcolm X Boulevard | NYC - Reservations recommended - visit ps122.org - Co-presented by Performance Space 122 and PEN World Voices Festival -

The Quiet Volume, a collaboration between Ant Hampton and Tim Etchells, exposes the strange magic at the heart of the reading experience. A self-generated and ‘automatic’ performance, Autoteatro, for two at a time experienced in the reading room of a library, audience members sit side-by-side taking cues from words both written and whispered – via an iPod and headphones – and find themselves burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books. Available in English and Spanish. New York premiere supported by the British Council. Duration: 55 minutes – 1 hour Cue China (Elsewhere, Offshore) - Ant Hampton -

May 1 – 5 - NYU Bobst Library | 70 Washington Square S | NYC - Reservations recommended - visit ps122.org - Co-presented by Performance Space 122 and PEN World Voices Festival -

An Autoteatro experience for two, Cue China (Elsewhere, Offshore) asks the pair to face each other through a glass teleprompter, which reveals a video conversation between creator Ant Hampton and a recently injured factory worker from China. This real footage is nestled within a curious fiction: over time the audience’s identities begin to literally merge with someone too often perceived as voiceless, ‘faceless’ and conveniently distant. Duration: 35 minutes

Single Tickets $10 | purchase online ps122.org - For an audience of two; tickets can be purchased individually or in pairs - Please arrive 10 minutes before your ticketed time - Facebook: facebook.com/ps122 twitter: @PS122
