Some people started cooking more, baking or sewing. Others developed new yoga, fitness and work-out practices. Some kept lockdown diaries, some became active in their neighbourhoods, volunteering or being politically active, made new friendships, relations, alliances… With these new activities and relationalities, what kind of traces are we leaving, what do we document, what will we keep, collect, hold on to and let go of?
Undoubtedly this time of confinement produced new kinds of knowledge, new ways of sharing knowledge, of relating, meeting, organising and teaching: digital ways mostly. Did our modes of sharing and communicating change for the long-run? And what about the old ones: the analogue, the object-related and person-to-person ones, have they been impacted forever?
During this episode we would like to discuss the question: how will we avoid forgetting what this period brought out in us, the realisations, the new experiences of ourselves and of civilization? How will we apply these new practices to the coming time? What will go into repertoires, toolboxes, knowledge banks. What will we keep practicing and how will we Track and Trace?

Scores for Isolation is a series of 6 instagram live broadcasts during which the publication Another Version: Thinking Through Performing will be used as a tool, and a lens, to address our current collective situation of confinement. Offering scores and exercises to listeners to be tried ‘at home’ and applying the notion of multiple selves and performative research strategies, we will explore and discuss this state of intermediacy. Each episode will have a different focus – Where’s the Arena?; Stuck with My Selves; Doing Time; Mad Mode; Speculations and Track and Trace. Listeners are invited to participate through the live feed or by emailing to email@example.com and different guests will be welcomed to join us in the broadcast.
