Parameters: Qualities

Comments Off

Inspired by Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons Kirsty and An looked into the different qualities one can use to compose, in this case, a text. The idea is to write words or a sentence through association on rhythm, colour, meaning, etc. Here it suited the way objects would engage in a conversation through objscrs.

Dorothé and An already used the same technique during their Summer Residency at Parts: in movement and in text.

Exercice de style

Comments Off

Choreographer Dorothé Depeauw & storyteller An Mertens worked together for one week in a studio at Summerstudios (Parts) from 26-30 July 2010. The sky was bright blue & the ambiance in the studio warm & smooth.

Starting point was the Kaleidoscope game ‘Exercice de Style‘.
They developed scores for each other, executed them, annotated the result, transformed the result into a new score that would be handed over again to the other. Ingredients of the score were mouvement, voice, notation, itinerary, daily life in the city, accumulation and code (the manual of objscrs).

The work was fluent, the results promising, the green light was given to have a closer look at what Kaleidoscope had generated in terms of questions & new challenges. !Co LAPse KoDe was launched although it did not have that name yet.
