Scores for Daily Living


Scores for Daily Living, was inspired by the floor plan as a script based on its inherent relationship to socio-spatial dynamics. Drawing from the floor plan of the Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz as the preliminary model for this research, a study of its choreographic intentions were developed into a alternative floor plans: drawings in the form of scores, notations or instructions, and as dramaturgy for a set of actions in space. This produced a series of arrangements to cultivate a system to illuminate the interdependency between movement and form, human and social-living space – a cathartic and intimate negotiation between bodies and the structures that contain them. These works were presented for an initial exhibition held in the summer of 2017 as part of Hidden Lines of Space, L40 (Berlin), and were further refined as a solo performance for “I hear you” (Jeg hører deg) Kunstmuseet, Nord-Trøndelag (Namsos). Recent iterations of the process invite the audience to contribute to this evolving score: THIS HOUSE IS NOT A HOME, Lothringer 13 Halle, Munich (2020); Scores for Daily Living, Cultural Center ZIL, Moscow (2019); Scores for Daily Living, Quartier Am Hafen, Köln (2019).
