The Canetti Reading Group (Rehearsal)

An essay in Elias Canetti’s seminal work ‘Crowds and Power’ becomes the point of focus for a fictional reading group. Each character in the group inhabits six typologies of the crowd identified by Canetti. The work presented takes the form of a script; where moments of awareness and a strengthening relationship to the artwork reveal themselves.

The film is edited from a series of rehearsals with actors in preparation for a performance at the Edinburgh Arts Festival. Actors were cast closely to match the typologies set out in the script.
