The Wit(h)ness Scores (2023 – )

The wit(h)ness Scores are a series of audio/ text scores for audience and performer that have evolved from my ongoing research into the relational-solo practice of self-choreography. 

Coined by the feminist artist and psychotherapist Bracha Ettinger, to ‘wit(h)ness’ is to ‘witness whilst resonating with another’ through an ‘encounter-event’. It is a practice of ‘being-with’, that challenges our tendency to encounter others/ performers/art via a disconnected/ objective ‘seeing’. 

Like the experience of a Rothko painting, it requires the creation of a shared ‘border space’, through which both audience and performer can settle into each other’s presence leading to the ‘co-emergence’ of the performance/ work.
