The Object Score is workshop for dancers, performers and theatre makers. Duda Paiva Company has been teaching at the Uqam-Montreal [CA], VCA -Melbourne [AUS], Esnam [FR], SESC- Sao Paulo – Rio de Janeiro [BR], Bialystok Akademy [PL], Sofia University (BG), SNDO [NL], HKU [NL].

The Object Score is based on the research of the cross-over between puppets and dance. The workshop challenges to develop short choreographic motives based on the technique that the performer has to dance with two ‘bodies’, his own and that of the puppet. By exploring this technique they discover the challenges and possibilities the movement of the dancer and the puppet are offering. In this space the performer is learning to create emotional lines between him/her and the puppet and imagination and creativity get another dimension.

This workshop can be combined with a workshop ‘how to make you own foam puppet’.
