EXPLORATION BLOCK 7

Thursday 2 June 2022, 13.00 - 17.00

Location: Dance Studio, Abo Akademi 


Details of exploration:

Below is the overall 'score' or series of prompts that were used for structuring a series of shared readings of the texts written over the previous days together in Market Square, Vasa.

 

Text: WHAT IS AGREED UPON?

How: Synchronous reading – start by reading the prompt together and then continue reading until you reach the end of your text. Attend to the other readings, at times leaving moments of silence and pause.

Duration: As long as it takes


Text: SAY IT AGAIN (PASSING ON)

How: Someone begins reading one of the texts written from the series SAY IT AGAIN. The last sentence that they read will have previously been passed on to another writer (as part of a score earlier in the week) to be the starting point for a further phase of writing. If another person recognises this line, they should then start their text – which should begin with a repetition of the previous person’s final sentence. Continue the chain of relations until reaching a stop, then start a new chain of relations.

Duration: As long as it takes

 

Text: FROM THE CORNER OF THE EYE

How: Take it in turns to read the texts generated in relation to this prompt.

Duration: As long as it takes

 

Text: ACOUSMATIC I

How: Take it in turns to read the texts generated in relation to this prompt.

Duration: As long as it takes

Duration: As long as it takes

A sentence written, given away, rewritten, given away, around the world.

A give-away as in "to reveal a secret", or to give away as in "to disown”.

Shadows are deep and sharp.

To be a shadow deep without depth, sharp without edge.

The crow shouts with two syllables.

Foot forward one at the back laughter.

All this labour all this cutting of stone and rock, always movement of material.

At some points, the rows of cobble stones meet each other on an angle, this is repeated in several places.

What is the resolution of your writing? / Are you dissolving when you write?
