Writing has been cast as monstrous – or at least violent – in its ability to disfigure, maim and destroy the life of live arts. Yet for many dance practitioners, writing is an integral part of studio-based dance processes, a necessary form of reflection and a site for creative experimentation and planning. In recognition of this positive value of writing for dance, this study explores writing that is coextensive with dance practice, in relation to critical theory that engages with writing as performance.
