SONG BOOKS as performance instructions

John Cage’s „Song Books“ are the point of departure for a choreographic research in the „Space for John Cage“. As is the case in almost all of his compositions, they have an open score and include verbal and graphic instructions as a foundation for individual, free realizations. Fifteen of the 89 songs were selected for the attempt at finding artistic readings and then testing them as interdisciplinary „instruction manuals“.
