Knowing the Score: An Investigation of Improvisational Structures
Museum of Arts and Design (2 Columbus Circle, Manhattan)
Included with museum admission

A score is a plan. A score is a preparation. A score is a map, a topography, a terrain. A score is something to explore.

During this one-day, museum-wide event, Sarah Maxfield offers an improvisational score through which to investigate the use of scoring in dance and performance. Maxfield has invited a number of consummate improvisers to participate in the investigation, and visitors to the museum are invited to participate in certain elements of the event as well. The score will be available before the event, so that visitors may choose when and how to join in. Participating artists include Ishmael Houston-Jones, Yvonne Meier, Ursula Eagly, Jen Rosenblit, and more.
