Lost Library

What happens when text is transformed into movement?

Bringing the figures associated with library use in the UK to life through a performance-installation.

Using figures obtained from CIPFA, we’ll be mixing up visual signals from financial trading floors with actual library-use statistics.

Format: A one day public performance echoing the format of a 1970’s stock exchange by using a hexagonal noticeboard with figures on library use being manually updated by performers in suits, with the audience joining in as desired. The journey of the figures to the boards is the open to interpretation by each participant, the key quality is haste in updating the boards.

The performance will be an experiment to fully update the boards with the library use data, creating a buzz of activity.

Interested? Email to submit. Deadline Monday 27 March 2017.

Curated by Catherine Wynne-Paton.
