Scores For Daily Living
|Emma Waltraud Howes
In this book, Berlin-based dancer and visual artist Emma Waltraud Howes and her collaborators operate from the viewpoint that embodied history offers important information for survival. Through live performances and material works, she explores how notation and scores can be used to navigate the everyday and act as a basis for practical exercises to anchor oneself. Her interdisciplinary works are guided by observations of bodily gestures. By presenting variations on rhythm and gait, gravity and grace, the volume shares a series of poetic engagements focusing on different states of self-empowerment and the connections between labour, ritual, and civilisation.
