The ReadPlay performs an intervention in Ray Bradbury’s novel ‘Fahrenheit 451’, intersecting it with Sojourner Truth’s speech ‘Ain’t I a woman’.
The Readplay is part of the research “Regimes of Memorizing” that Read-in has developed in forms of workshops, performances, booklet and written text.
excerpt from Readplay: A resistance group forms on the wooded margins of society, dedicated to memorizing books as a means of founding a new society. Each member of the resistance chooses a book to commit to memory; they recite the books out loud to one another to maintain their grasp of the words.
Read-in investigates which books are memorized for a new society to come and suggests a different set of texts.
