Lecture Series "SCORES - Between Documentation, Mediation, and Creation"

April 13 to July 06, 2022

Together with the Folkwang University of the Arts Essen and the University of Hildesheim Foundation, the Center for Contemporary Dance is organizing an interdisciplinary and hybrid lecture series on the topic of SCORES in the summer semester 2022. 

Between documentation, mediation and creation, scores seem to be on everyone's lips at the moment. Choreographies and performances are based on scores, generate and modify them. Dance Studies have also discovered scores as dance-specific media. In the lecture series, speakers from dance practical, dance theoretical and interdisciplinary perspectives approach scores and ask how and where they can be located in their complex use. Interdisciplinary impulses should set new accents. What distinguishes scores from dance notations? What do both have in common? What potential do they contain for dance practice and dance thinking? What are their limits?

The lecture series is open to the public and will take place on Wednesdays from 18:00 to 19:30 from 13 April to 06 July 2022. Attendance can be made online via Zoom or on-site at Folkwang University of the Arts Essen or the Center for Contemporary Dance Cologne. The languages of the event are German and English. We try to make the event as barrier-free as possible. Please register at: miriam.althammer(at)hfmt-koeln(dot)de
