Week inside a Rock

Level 1:

Abraham Poincheval is an artist. He is French. His performances are special. They are very difficult, too.

Poincheval spends a week inside a rock. There is a space inside the rock. There are holes for air. He drinks water. He also eats soup and dried meat.

Difficult words: performance (the actions of an artist), hole (a space), dried (without any water inside).

Level 2:

Abraham Poincheval is a French artist who specialises in endurance performances. For example, he spent 13 days inside a hollow bear.

For his latest performance, he spent a week inside a rock. There was a space for somebody in the rock, and there were holes for air. Poincheval drank water, ate soup and ate dried meat. He said that the most complicated thing was not going crazy.

Difficult words: endurance (the ability to endure/survive something difficult), performance (the actions of an artist), hollow (with space inside).

Level3:

Abraham Poincheval, an artist who specialises in endurance-testing performances, spent a whole week inside a boulder in an art gallery in Paris. People supplied him with water, soup and dried meat during his stunt.

The 12-ton limestone had a body-shaped hole inside, large enough for a person to sit in. Air entered through holes. Poincheval said that the most complicated thing was to keep himself away from a world of hallucinations.

For his previous performance, he spent 13 days inside a hollowed-out bear, and he is planning on sitting on eggs in an attempt to hatch them.

Difficult words: endurance (the ability to endure/survive something difficult), boulder (a large rock), stunt (performance), limestone (a type of hard rock), in an attempt (trying to).
