Mut – jede stimme zählt is a participative choir performance designed to blur the lines between performers and audience. The piece is written for an 8-part choir (regardless of voice pitch), which should be roughly equal in size and distributed in the areas where the audience is located. The ninth voice is intended for the audience itself, who can also participate via their smartphones.

Desire Machine Lab Score

Application of the Assemlage Flow- Interaction Concept to a Dance Score.

Maria has tried to create a dance score that translates the concept of flow and interaction – the desiring machine into the movement. In order to do so, she addressed the anatomical categorisation of the movement range of the human joints:

The joins of the skeleton define the motion of the body and its limitations. Maria has developed a score based on the synovial joints and the type of movements and limitations they allow.

T/D stands for Territorialisation and Deterritorialisation (see here)


The score was developed in a frame of a residency at Schiede Hallein in September 2022. The work was presented in an experiemental format during the final showing of the residency and resieved positive feedback from the audience.

Null space experiment: double pendulum and a score by György Kúrtag

Who: LeoHanne

Leonhard Horstmeyer and Hanne Pilgrim conducted a workshop with eurhythmics students from Vienna and Stockholm as part of a “Learning, Teaching, Training Activity” in the Erasmus+ funded project “Eurhythmics in Education and Artistic Practice”.

Participants were ask to project the motif of a double pendulum as departure point for a movement composition “Tenyeres” from Játekók Vol.1 by György Kúrtag as musical departure point.
