This issue on contemporary writing and its performance, on performance and its writings, and on the various environments and contexts in which such work takes place, imagines how a text can be conceptualised, written, presented and figured with equal or more contingency and responsiveness to temporal and corporeal happenings, and vice versa. ‘On Writing & Performance’ seeks to extend current and historical dialogues on the shifting relationship between textual and performance practices and considers its theme from the perspectives of a diverse sweep of live, sited, scored and voice work, and critical texts in the fields of performance and writing.
