Found: Sarah Maxfield does scores of scores at M.A.D.
Sarah Maxfield, behind Red Metal Mailbox and the recent, well-lauded We Deserve Each Other at Chocolate Factory, has created something new and wonderful again. This time in union with the Museum of Arts and Design, which is a particularly interesting collaboration. Hurrah for museum-space becoming randomized, unpredictable, improv space!
From MAD’s website:
A score is a plan. A score is a preparation. A score is a map, a topography, a terrain. A score is something to explore.
During this one-day, museum-wide event, Sarah Maxfield offers an improvisational score through which to investigate the use of scoring in dance and performance. Maxfield has invited a number of consummate improvisers to participate in the investigation, and visitors to the museum are invited to participate in certain elements of the event as well. The score will be available before the event, so that visitors may choose when and how to join in. Created by Sarah Maxfield, with participation and contributions by: Aretha Aoki, Jodi Bender, Rebecca Davis, Milka Djordjevich, Ursula Eagly, Carolyn Hall, Kennis Hawkins, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Yvonne Meier, Tara O’Con, Will Rawls, Jen Rosenblit, Jillian Sweeney, Maggie Thom, Arturo Vidich, and Enrico D. Wey.
