This article tries to rethink the ways in which the bundle of audio–video documentation and written material entitled A Choreographer’s Score approaches the early dance and choreographic practice of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and her contemporary dance group Rosas. As I wish to propose, this hybrid bundle, which came about as a dialogical meeting between the aforementioned choreographer and the theoretician Bojana Cvejić, remains ‘faithful' to the materiality of dance by not inscribing it in normative registers of writing on dance and dance-writing, but by attempting the rethinking of the contextual redefinitions of both – and other – dance-specific concepts precisely through the practice of writing on dance.
