Hamlet – part of score (act 3, scene 1) HAMLET (monolog on suicide) 90 Be all my sins remember’d (Ophelia enters the stage) OPHELIA 90 Good my lord, 91 How does your honor for this many a day? HAMLET 92 I humbly thank you; well, well, well. OPHELIA 93 My lord, I have remembrances of yours, 94 That I have longed long to re-deliver; 95 I pray you, now receive them. HAMLET 95 No, not I; 96 I never gave you aught. OPHELIA 97 My honor'd lord, you know right well you did; 98 And, with them, words of so sweet breath composed 99 As made the things more rich. Their perfume lost, 100 Take these again; for to the noble mind 101 Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind. 102 There, my lord. HAMLET 103 Ha, ha! are you honest? OPHELIA 104 My lord? HAMLET 105 Are you fair? OPHELIA 106 What means your lordship? HAMLET 107 That if you be honest and fair, your honesty should 108 admit no discourse to your beauty. OPHELIA 109 Could beauty, my lord, have better commerce than 110 with honesty? HAMLET 111 Ay, truly; for the power of beauty will sooner 112 transform honesty from what it is to a bawd than the 113 force of honesty can translate beauty into his 114 likeness. This was sometime a paradox, but now the 115 time gives it proof. I did love you once.

Working with scores What is interesting? Leave room for discovery – art is exploration not argumentation Make decisions based on tests – not merely discussion “Dance isn't something that can be explained in words; it has to be danced” – Martha Graham
