When readers leave the walls of the old library, it will open its doors to spectators.

In a place that conserves life, time, truths and ideas, we'll rip old covers off the books of our own stories and talk to our souls in the language of art.

This game has some rules. You have to arrive 15 minutes in advance. Turn over your mobile phone, get the headphones, and understand that all events within the next hour are not guaranteed to be real. They may as well be a figment of the conversation in your head...

Come and stay quiet...


Millions of words keep silent on the bookshelves.

They would like to talk but it's against the rules here, it should be quiet in the library.

Today we'll talk in a place where any dialog is usually doomed.

Feelings will whisper, shout, and overflow. There will be dialogs on stairways, shelves, in soundless halls, and in your head...
A play without wings and limitations.

Instead of taking you by the hand, the story is at your heels. There are only 20 strangers to talk to themselves and hear the important things in silence.
