This event will examine the relationship between sleep and text. Artists and professionals in various fields will be invited to “read” soporific texts - such as codes, philosophy, literature, diary, manuals, and laws – in low, flat, mechanical, solemn, and unnatural tones. After each recital, the members of the audience who surrender to sleep will be documented to reflect the connection between various texts and sleep. These efforts will not enhance the message conveyed by the text but rather they will expand on the traditional definition of text; when read aloud, texts can induce sleep giving them new meaning. 

* Admission to all events are free of charge. Prior registrations are suggested and are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. If applications are oversubscribed before the deadline, we will stop accepting applications without further notice. Please visit for full details.
