The Body as a Score
Scores are used in music, dance and performing arts as a way of recording or triggering compositions and choreographies. They can be read, interpreted and performed by the artists themselves, or by other performers. This workshop will look at how to make and read different kinds of scores using your body and voice.
We’ll be diving into topics such as: how can you develop a notation system that both captures what you want to communicate and can easily be interpreted by performers? What elements of a performance do we choose to include and leave out in a score?
In The Body as a Score-workshop we’ll be using text, speech, and graphic elements in our scores, and our bodies and voices as instruments. Please bring your own texts to work with (a recipe, a poem, a novel, etc.). No previous experience in any form of score-making is required.

About Training the Senses
Knowledge is not only acquired visually at schools through language and text books. Learning involves all of our senses: we learn by listening, tasting, smelling, touching – and even by using our intuition. Through Training the Senses participants explore and discover a new vocabulary for all their senses and a new way to transmit experience and acquire knowledge. Training the Senses is an ongoing series by Marres, that avoids any division between the speakers, performance and the audience.
