My chronicle of a marathon reading, republished today on The Marina Abramovic Intitute’s Immaterial. From the introduction:
I attended the marathon reading of Solaris by Stanislaw Lem presented by Marina Abramovic Institute and The Atlas Review on August 3rd, 2013. The reading was scheduled to last eight hours, so I intended to sit in the theater below the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn as long as I could and attempt to write while the performance occurred. The reading went over schedule, lasting nearly ten hours, but I remained seated for eight hours.
Last August, Chelsea sat in a chair for eight hours while people read from Solaris in the name of Marina Abramovic. You can hear Chelsea read at The Book Report on Tuesday.
