Choreography for Reading Aloud

Choreography for Reading Aloud functions to activate any library, literary collection, bookstore or any site with consumable texts of any sort.  Performers are given texts from the site to read aloud creating a cacophony of sounds where stories collide with facts, theory, opinions, lists and any manner of written work. The work engages draws attention to what happens when multiple platforms of knowledge overlap, intersect, obscure each other.  How does the transport of meaning shift when multiple printed works are amplified by voice?

The object that most often remains quite has the volume turned up?
