A side-by-side view of the original improv, Instant Quartet (2010, right) and Granted the Right to be Granted (2019, left). Instant Quartet (vimeo.com/17937617 ) is utilised as a visual score for a new piece. The Audio is a live recording of Granted the Right to be Granted.
Studying the movement of Loanna Kabylafka and Stavros Apostolatos in Instant Quartet and scribing each movement as a reverse score. The transcriptions of the movements were run through optical character recognition data to abstract new text. This new text together with the original transcriptions were painted on our bodies and then performed in real time. A collective performance in the same location, Instant Quartet is re-enacted nearly ten years later.
