No. 1 (2021): The Origins

Score and Sub-score: A useful but wrong word

March 5, 2021


Julia Varley reacts to the questions addressed to her by the French scholar Patrice Pavis during a lecture which was held in 1992 for the 7th session of ISTA (International School of Theatre Anthropology) in Brecon and Cardiff. Reflecting on her work as an actress, Varley interrogates crucial aspects such as the observation of other’s work, professionalism, theatre craft, acting techniques, mental process. Furthermore, Varley addresses the notion of “sub-score”, beyond “sub-text”, discussed by ISTA participants and scientific staff.
