Writing an article about a performed paper is a rare version of tautology. This article will be a form of repetition, but may not serve to clarify its original offering. What then can it offer? Perhaps it is a reminder of a stimulus but not a recording of the visual, felt and live events. It provides the words we used and the thoughts we had when responding to Susan Leigh Foster’s words. It was not our intention to refute her words, but rather to use them as an initial provocation to serve a wider dialogue, one that is not solely concerned with a purely conceptual turn or body-centric agenda. The article then describes the creative process of the performed paper and the events themselves.

  • This journal focuses on the relationship between dance and somatic practices, and the influence of this body of practice on the wider performing arts. The journal will be aimed at scholars and artists, providing a space for practitioners and theorists to debate the work, to consider the impact and influence of the work on performance, the interventions that somatic practices can have on other disciplines and the implications for research and teaching.
