Movement Memory: Scripts / Partitions / Notations
Why do we feel the necessity to preserve immaterial art? Can the ephemeral nature of a performance be part of the performance itself? How can a time-based work of art like a performance or choreography be documented, preserved, and represented? What are the differences between making a partition or a script and documenting a performance? During the workshop, you will explore live art performance and its relationship to documentation and archive, develop different strategies for the conservation and activation of performance, dance, theatre, and activist works through the identification of parallels in terms of authorship, authenticity, autonomy, memory, continuity, and liveness.
