You asked that this score should be informed by several parameters, which you got from Yvonne Rainer, I think. I didn’t pay too much attention these, I admit, because of the distracted circumstances in which Response 48 was created, but I want to extract from these for your task.
‘Dance’ to the score at least once and as many times as you like, and record your activity in some way, whether directly (using audio or audiovisual tech) or retrospectively (using prose or drawing). Vocalise your activity as you engage in it. Here are your obstructions, intentionally cruel given your advanced pregnancy and the character of the score itself.
- no theme and variation
- no repetition
- a dance that doesn’t go anywhere
- no climax
- perform standing; ie. no lying on the floor
Make this response a goodbye to the project.
