As part of Movement Lab, Scores for Gardens will host a workshop session at the Royal Academy of the Arts, Den Haag, where imagination, translation, movement and storytelling become key tools. Inspired by practices such as astrology, the group will use personal fictions and forecasts to develop a shared methodology.

In a series of body, voice, breathing and narrative-exercises, the participants will activate a collective body, whose orbits can differ or align, moving between attunement and dissonance. Engaging with their senses (including that of humour) the participants will translate the fleeting states of everyday life into a shared score.


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).
