Stories in the Cabbage Shed

Can classic literature nourish plants the same way it nourishes human minds? Can plant souls be equally moved by the powerful emotions Literature evokes? Anastasia Loginova proposes to find out by reading Lev Tolstoj to a plant audience. In previous performances she read Tolstoj's Anna Karenina to plants in the Leiden Hortus. For this reading session, she is curious to find out if a connection to cabbages turns out just as nice. Her reading sessions may also be extended to the public and pets.
