Communal Reading

What we are going to lose if we can’t do things together?

The idea of communal reading is that you are a participant in a group adventure, what you are reading is the same as what everyone else’s reading. It’s the combination of all of us reading simultaneously and communicating the whole text.

The text has been divided into two pieces. It requires two people to read them together. It is like chorus, your contribution might not make any sense to you on your own, but the action of listening to the others’ reading completes your picture. From this work, peole are reading the text about “Communal Reading” communally, and experiencing it, testing it by themselves.
