Calligraphic Scores Sellasia, 2019
Marili Pizarro is presented with a movement score to perform in a local Peloponnese café. Reimagined into fluid a two-minute routine, Marili reinterprets the calligraphic qualities of the score live. Using the same tools as the original score, Marili’s movements are then scribed into calligraphic glyphs. Each glyph resembling a character in a primordial alphabet – a language that is then given to Robert Jedrzejewski as a sound score. The video combines each score and each original reading.
Produced at the Koumaria Residency 2019, Sellasia, Greece.
