My Beginnings Marathon piece is happening today at KANAL – Centre Pompidou in Brussels, part of Brussels, City of Stories.
Beginnings Marathon is a durational performance where we read out loud first pages of books to make a collage of beginnings. We are doing the piece a bit differently this time for obvious reasons… opening it up to contributions from a distance. So in addition to coming to KANAL and reading the first page of a book, people can also contribute to the project by sending in a photo of the first page of a book that’s important to them – on any topic, any genre and in any language. Pages sent in from a distance will be read out loud by a group of multilingual performers at KANAL.
Beginnings Marathon is part of the programme surrounding the final weekend of John M. Armleder’s exhibition It Never Ends.
