On July 2nd Scores for Gardens performed a site-specific intervention at Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen as parts of their program Worlds that World.

In this first edition of ‘Worlds that World’ Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen offers space to a selection of four initiatives to expand their practice centered around world building.

Worlds that World
Over the past years huddled voices became increasingly louder in reaction to the clusterfuck of multiple crises (Wxtchcraft, 2021) shaped by trauma and desperate need of survival. In times defined by capitalism, ableism, white supremacy and patriarchy, these voices experience a lack of space and resources to dream another world: “The late Mark Fisher once famously said that it’s easier to imagine the end of the world than it is to imagine the end of capitalism. The same could be said about prisons: it is easier to imagine the end of the world than it is to imagine a world without prisons.’’ (Wang, 2018)

Without space, how can dreams that are dreamt and worlds that are worlded stay undefined by – and ultimately end – repetitive threatening forces?

How do gardens think? 

Scores for Gardens is a self-organised, interdisciplinary group working with performance, garden studies, and pedagogies since 2019. Taking as a starting point the multilayered concept of the garden, we collectively practice the nourishment of support structures that foster embodied research and reciprocal learning.
We make scores that manifest through sound, text, and movement by digging into the polyphonic and even dissonant relationships and temporalities of ecosystems.

Scores for Gardens is founded and composed by theatre-maker and performer Katrine Leth Nielsen (Copenhagen), choreographer and performance artist Juan Felipe Amaya Gonzalez (Berlin), curator and writer Angeliki Tzortzakaki (Amsterdam) and recently joined by transdisciplinary designer Toni Brell (Amsterdam).
