One-day online premiere. Video recording of public reading performance from A Survival Guide by Alma Lily Rayner, created for Jindřich Chalupecký Award 2020 Exhibition.
In the performance each participant offers a piece of themselves. Each came to read a text meaningful for their existence. Some wrote their own words and some borrowed from the words of others. All are here to transform silence into a collective action.
