Performing, Writing focuses on performance writing, a specific mode of writing as an embodied and spatial gesture as noted by one of our keynote speakers, Emeritus Professor John Hall (Falmouth University, UK).

The research imagines how a text can be conceptualised, written, spoken, presented and figured with equal or more contingency and responsiveness to temporal and corporeal happenings, and vice versa. What creative, dialogic, autobiographical or alternative writing approaches might elicit a text that engages with the plurality of affects of an artwork? How might a creative work be informed, inspired, directed, scripted or critiqued with the same respect for live-ness that unfolds spatially as it does textually?

How might these parallel practices inhabit space symbiotically? How might a new culture of criticality develop in between acts of ?performing through?? These questions underpin research activity that will be developed prior to and during a symposium of international stature held in Wellington, NZ and as a special guest edited journal issue that follows the symposium. Keynotes lectures on 12, 13 and 14 March will be open to the public and free of charge.
