Scripts for Performances
A constellation of texts, largely written to be spoken. The scripts as they are printed do not document the performances primarily. They are indications of spatial and temporal layering, juxtapositions of aesthetic and poetic elements and bodies. Overlapping every day observations with archival material, confronting and jumping. Figures that intervene – interruptions into the reproduction and maintenance of colonial poison cabinets and patriarchal canons. Histories of involvement. The folding of histories. Entangling feminist fictions. Taking care of. Trouble, always trouble. Contributors include, Romy Rüegger, Emma Haugh and Katherine MacBride. Romy Rüegger, (b.1983), is an Swiss based artist and writer working with sound based practices and shared listening. Her writings for performances, audio works and choreographed spaces draw on anti-racist and intersectional politics of language and memory. Most of the scripts in this publication were written on invitation of friends and are closely related to long term collaborations.
