Working Group on Non-Traditional Scores

The Working Group on Non-Traditional Scores is currently meeting on a weekly basis in Mexico City.

The group uses Jo Freeman’s text on feminist organizing, “The Tyranny of Structurelessness,” to recuperate Lawrence Halprin’s idea of the “RSVP Cycle,” which he presents and immediately apologizes for in his book The RSVP Cycles: Creative Processes in the Human Environment. Ideas discussed include: creating standards by which to evaluate non-traditional scores; questioning who may or may not perform a given score; if a non-traditional score has radical potential, how to keep that potential intact after the score has been performed or otherwise executed.

The Working Group on Non-Traditional Scores meets at Héctor in Mexico City. The project is supported in part by the Patronato de Arte Contemporáneo.
