In the piece every now and then Mette Edvardsen and Philippe Beloul invite the audience to read a book as a performance.

The idea is to create a space and a time inside a book, like a piece in a theatre. For the whole duration of the piece the audience can read through the pages and the spaces of the book at the same time as they follow what is taking place on stage. The book is direct, tactile and persistent, giving the audience another access to the piece. The reader of a book can decide for him/ herself the reading direction, the tempo and the space. With the book, every now and then is a piece to delve into, proposing an individual reading combined with a collective experience. How does the experience of reading a book merge with the experience watching a performance, how does the book read after the performance is over?
