Poetic of Scores @ MUK Vienna
Lecture | Workshop | Intervention
20th of April 2021
Online and Outdoor
„Scores invite us to step out of the studio and into the world; to trust and engage in explorations of movement. They don’t let us get stuck in habits and instigate us to pursue playfulness and precision in our own dance and performances.“ (Sabina Holzer)
Poetics of Scores explores scores and instructions for action as a method of composition for interventions in public spaces and asks whether this particular methodological approach is reflected in specific ways aesthetically and ethically in the performative settings.
The transdisciplinary approach will be presented with a focus on the use of scores in the work of Anna and Lawrence Halprin and their social choreographies as an example in a lecture.
Based on this, we will practically explore the conditions of Scores in a three-hour workshop. What forms of communities are generated with this practice? What kind of togetherness or being-with is created when attention is focused on sensory perception. What kind of spaces for action are created by this?
With these investigations we will design an intervention in public space in the 2nd part and reflect on it together.

[hmm] – howls & murmurs for endangered futures
Sabina Holzer with Elisabeth Schäfer
Poem #5 is part of a series of events pertaining to Noa & Snow, a gentle experiment between the everyday and the event. Initiated by choreographer and dancer Alix Eynaudi and located at the crossroad between curating, writing and choreography, Noa & Snow wants to open a space where art meets other ordinary work activities. brut is a long-term partner of this project, as well as the Volkskundemuseum Wien where, this time again, Poem #5 will be hosted as an event in the frame of Wien Modern 2020. For this particular edition, guitarist Tom Pauwels and pianist Han-Gyeol Lie will join the project, as well as poet Mihret Kebede, sound engineer Paul Kotal and dancers Mark Lorimer, Cécile Tonizzo and Lydia McGlinchey.
poem #5, a stray event, a vehicle, a vector, a transport device: a flying carpet! a cloud piercer.
And us the emulsive f/actors, the whips that whip the cream, an ‘undomesticated menagerie’ (wrongly quoted Mark Foster Gage) of inheritances, installed inside each other’s presences, chewing and tuning frequencies in and out of our every days. Tom Pauwels, Mirhet Kebede, Cécile Tonizzo, Quim Pujol, Lydia Mcglinchey, Mark Lorimer, Han-Gyeol Lie, Paul Kotal, Ujjwal Utkarsh, Sabina Holzer, Alix Eynaudi, Eva Holzinger. Paula Caspão and An Breugelmans too, our winds from afar.

The Institut für künstlerischen Forschung zur Körperpoesie der Kindheit was founded in 2018 by Jack Hauser, Sabina Holzer and Esther Strauß. Freely adapted from Claude Lévi-Strauss, the institute is dedicated to wild research. It understands the process not as the shortest possible path to the work, but as the actual event. Research means not knowing, means not yet knowing and the desire to know in the game.
Curated, produced and organzed by Vorbrenner & cattravelsnotalone.

Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga®
Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga® (founded by Sadie Nardini) is a mindful and invigorating yoga that incorporates pilates and release techniques in the execution of asanas. In this yoga we combine our breath especially effectively with the flow of movement. The focus is on the deep muscles of the pelvic floor, psoas and lower back. I prepare different focuses depending on the occaisions.
