The Nomadic Scores are a collection of scores that Anna Konjetzky, Sahra Huby, Carolin Jüngst, and Quindell Orton have accumulated through their work, and during the research project Nomadic Academy. Scores coming out of collective researches and contexts, fed by many other artists, writers and researchers…still in “becoming” and expanding.
The scores are gathered in the form of a card set that can be ordered by anyone. Each card is an invitation to a particular score, that is moving between five different zones: queering, rewriting ,caring, sensitising, and decentralising, which fluidly overlap and intersect as do the colours.
The zone is about unknowing the known, a playful proposal to experience things from upside down and diagonals. Practicing alternative paths and finding the in-betweens. Making it multiple, making it strange.
This zone is about acknowledging and deconstructing what shaped us. Questioning references, heritage and education. Rewriting a new past for a different future.
This zone is about how we practice care, how we listen, how we exist together in response-ability. Acknowledging codependence and interdependence, building a system of support and resonance.
This zone is about creating practices for awakening and celebrating all the senses. Breaking their Hierarchy, letting them intertwine and create new ones. Digging into the layers of sensuality, and taking pleasure as a mode of encountering the world.
This zone is about practicing co-existence in a larger ecosystem, to develop kinship beyond human bonds and to take humans out of center stage.
Two by two:
One person closes their eyes, the other puts invisible makeup on their partner´s face,
using their fingers to touch the face, and naming each time what kind of colour, style and shape they are applying.
Swap roles when the make up is finished.
Radical Listening-More than Human
Take a plant as a partner. Look at each other for 1 minute. The person listens to the plant for 2 minutes. Then the person asks follow-up questions to the plant for 30 seconds.
