Tuning Scores Practice

Tuning Scores are the life's work of the artist Lisa Nelson, and as such can't be put down in just a few paragraphs. They are a tool that Lisa Nelson with colleagues have been developing since many decades.
For starters though, we can say that through practicing Tuning Scores together, we show each other how we see dance. The unity of the doer and the watcher, of the "inside" and the "outside" perspective, is felt and practiced.We notice how we ourselves edit our dance, through internal "calls". Some of these calls can then also become audible, as they are made by any individual, to the whole space. Some examples of “calls” are: pause, begin, end, repeat, reverse, re-situate, report, etc. The calls are often surprising and by applying them we practice detachment to the material. The final destination of Tuning Scores Practice is the so-named state of "Go”, where the calls are no longer necessary, because the group has tuned-in.
For the rest, it best be experienced. We'll explore it together.
