“All the Stories”, 2011


‘A man/ a woman recites all the stories of the world in a loud voice. When she is done, all the stories, all men and women, all time and all places will have passed through her lips.

Write a story: If you want to contribute to this collection, we’ll be very happy to have your story. Just click here and remember no story should be longer than four lines. Write a story …’

With the minimum of instructions and a restricted format of four lines, Dora García’s collaborative and participatory project has now collected over 2,500 stories. Ranging from mundane to the extraordinary, these four line vignettes reveal the shared fears and fantasies of the contributors, the pervasiveness of popular culture and the possibilities of the imagination.

Collected in the form of a book for the first time, this publication presents all the contributions up to 2011, and is published to accompany a live reading of All the Stories commissioned for Again, A Time Machine at Eastside Projects.
