A Reading of Audience

The artistic part of Tuomas Laitinen’s doctoral research.

What is audience?

A Reading of Audience is an event of reading, examining the condition called “audience”. The object of reading is a text, which functions between the auditorium and the stage as a tendon, gauze, path, wall, seductor, critic, theorist, essay, script, score.

”Reading” is a proposal of an art form, in which the focus is not in the act of writing but in the event of reading.
