Scores for Daily Living explores the use of the architectural floor plan as a template for creating graphic notations for performance. The L40 exhibition space at the Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, Berlin, served as the first site of this research, where a series of drawings for the choreography of eight performers was produced. This notation system was intended to create a framework that encourages agency and highlights “embodied knowledge,” in contrast to traditional labanotation, an approach for graphically representing the human body that instructs dancers to perform deliberate movements in a 1:1 ratio.
Later iterations of Scores for Daily Living expand on the original drawings and their accompanying notation system. For more on the background that informed the evolution of Scores for Daily Living and its subsequent iterations, see the publication Ankyloglossia (n. tongue-tie) (K. Verlag and Künstlerhaus Bethanien, 2014).
