De-Choiring: a workshop for new approaches to scoring — Megan Alice Clune, Nicole Pingon, Chanel Tobler, and Mara Schwerdtfeger

21 + 22 May, 2022
PACT, Pheonix Central Park, Chippendale, Sydney / Eora

De-Choiring brings together four artists to facilitate an interactive performance workshop. Vocalisations, gestures, and sound making will be communicated through new methods of score making. Leading the workshops are musician and composer Megan Alice Clune, visual artist Chanel Tobler, theatre maker Nicole Pingon, and composer and curator Mara Schwerdtfeger. Together as composers and performers, we will experiment in bringing together voices with experimental communication and interpretation.

Upon arrival, you will be provided with a score book. The scores will be accessible in their notation, floating between graphic elements, instructio nal text and abstract video. The four sessions (approx. 45min. each) will run in two blocks wherein the artists will teach the language of the score, run a short explanatory exercise based around the piece’s ideas and techniques, and finally, perform the score with you.

30 Minutes From: A Walk — Marianna Ebersoll


Every day we navigate the city in our own worlds, plugged into various technologies that track our paths. What happens we all listen in to the same audio file at the same time, following the same instructions and walking to the same meeting point? A 30 minute guided audio piece will bring you towards our destination. There, we will discuss and share images, thoughts and reflections from our walks, connecting our experiences to form a shared archive.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are making some adjustments to the original happening and extending this invitation to wherever you may be. Rather than meeting as originally planned, we will now meet on a collaborative google doc where images, thoughts and reflections from our walks will connect our experiences, forming a shared archive. In the guide there will be suggested routes that can be used as reference for your own walk, but you can take part in this exercise whenever and wherever is possible for you.
