Voicing the landscape: notes on resonance, 11- 20 October, 2021

A gathering for methodology

Voicing the landscape: notes on resonance is part of the programme Towards the Possibility of a Garden.

In October 2021 we gathered in Berlin to study and deepen our performative practice through a series of breathing, voice, and movement exercises. These exercises facilitated an embodied interaction with the surrounding environment(s), highlighting, amongst others, how presence translates landscapes and stimuli into performative devices (songs, words, movement sequences).

Throughout the gathering, we practised our combined capacities and collective potentialities to listen and speak to and with our bodies, through structures and textures. The research took place in different sites such as Floating University Berlin and a dance studio. It served as the methodological and practical ground for the upcoming chapters of the ongoing project Towards the Possibility of a Garden.

Towards the Possibility of a Garden is a research-based public programme stretched within non-consecutive equinoxes and solstices. It is a constellation of workshops, reading groups, performances and installations. 

The programme will unfold in four chapters following the circular temporality of nature and garden-ing and it will be made public via

With the support of the Gwaertler Foundation.


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).
