Some scores might be the core of the performance, others are the remaining traces. Sometimes they are material for improvisation. Scores can remain private and help to reach a certain state for the live act, others might be artwork in themselves. Where does script end and the artwork begin? What is the shift from concept to performance? We invite performance artists: Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro, John Court, Katie Lee Dunbar, Camilla Graff Junior, Leena Kela, Anaïs Héraud & Till Baumann; all of whom have developed a practice of score writing. Throughout the 19th of May the seven artists will share their methods and enter a dialog; showing visual, textual and audio scores as well as the relevant performances.
