    A hybrid that composes with texts and notations; this article acts both as a discourse and a choreographic score about the performance of readership as a mode of participation. Naming this participation 'implication', the article studies the notion of attachment developed by the spectator-reader, and the notion of partnership with the artist (becoming 'partner in crime' by searching together with the artist). The term 'implication' also refers to the relation that is inherent to reading. Composing with the movement of the eyes, the contact with the paper, the breathing and the possible relations emerging from reading, the scores of this article show examples of notation addressed to the audience and invite for an understanding of how notation can perform on their readers, and of how can it trigger encounters between spectators.
