efforts in reading Kaspar by Peter Handke

Lu Zhang, Tim Simonds, and Aaron Lehman perform a public reading of Peter Handke's play Kaspar (1967), collaboratively reconceived and read through a single translucent paper copy. Playing at reading. Excerpt from Kaspar: "They speak a text that is not theirs. They do not speak to make sense but to show that they are playing at speaking, and do so with great exertion of their voices even when they speak softly... He utters a single sentence over and over: I want to be a person like somebody else was once."
