SCORED: PENPALS

2021
 presented by Pieter Performance Space
 facilitated by Juli Brandano
 

“SCORED: PEN PALS is both a live virtual performance event and a published collection of scores-as-correspondences between pen pals from the West and East coasts, bridging communities and practices after over a year of pandemic-induced isolation.

Two people from different places will exchange performance scores (instructions, drawings, descriptions, etc.). With an intentionally short period of preparation time, the participants will perform the scores back to back in a virtual setting through Pieter. The scores, alongside images from the performance, will be published as the second issue of SCORED.” 

 - Juli Brandano

My score, echO: limb to soil was sent to my East penpal, Elaine Levia.
We performed virtually in June 2021
Publishing TBD

steam surfaces from the earth’s core

allow your arches to spread tethered firm and buoyant

sink into the caress of heat budding in your cells

if you remain stagnant the heat will increase

cool your limbs by inviting them to travel in space

sweat spirals

settle&steam

you are the core

unleaSHHHHHHH

feel the heat dissipate with your kinesthetic curiosity

.

.

your arches shape embers

the vibration of your voice sweeps spirals –– anchor in the clouds

invite the hum to imbue your instrumental earth body

traverse limb to soil

settle&steam

you are the core

unleaSHHHHHHH

.

the wind within your current sings

exist in the echoes of organic wavves

find the rise of stillness on the shore

the wind within your current sings

exist in the echoes of organic wavves

exist in the echo

savor this contribution to our earth body
