The Choreographers' Scores: 2020

Curated by Kristy Edmunds, commissioned and published by UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance
Printed by The Lapis Press 


In the spring 2020 during the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic, all dance and live performances were halted throughout the United States and much of the world. The impact to the livelihoods of dancers and choreographers was immediate and long lasting. The Choreographers’ Scores: 2020 was conceived and curated by Kristy Edmunds, Director of UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance as a collaboration with 26 US-based choreographers to create a handmade score to be editioned as fine art prints. Each artist received a commission to contribute a score in visual time, and to do so from where ever they were sheltering throughout the summer of 2020. The resulting edition is a rare collection of works on paper that reveal the unique and intimate explorations of these artists, and insights to their choreographic ideas while awaiting their return to the studios and stages. We'd like to thank The Lapis Press for their wonderful work in this process. Learn more about Lapis.
