This Studies Project considers the questions, goals, and strategies behind different kinds of scores for dance performance, research, movement invention, and other forms of investigation. In describing the trajectory of a score from design to activation, panelists will confront a range of questions: What are dance scores, and how are they used to make dances? How are they constructed and designed? How are they articulated and translated to dancers? Are they works of prose, poetry, or both? Are they possible to achieve, or purely aspirational? Are they meant to be adhered to, or should they be abandoned once employed?

Panelists include mayfield brooks, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Jennifer Monson, Lisa Nelson, Angie Pittman, and Kayvon Pourazar.

This event will take place at The Museum of Modern Art, in conjunction with Judson Dance Theater: The Work Is Never Done. Click here for more information regarding the exhibition at MoMA.
