This special issue emerged from the two-day Symposium Wright-ing the Somatic: dancing & writing Professional Practice that we curated at Middlesex University in August 2016 https://vimeo.com/274485377 . This symposium was the first in a trilogy we have subsequently curated (Narrating the Somatic: gathering voices, sharing practices https://vimeo.com/274482762 in Feb 2018, and the forthcoming Queering the Somatic: interrupting the narrative in November 2019). The Symposiums have been clustered around an interest in how we move through, between, and across the communication of dance practices in order to share our processes for, and understanding of, the moving body. The Symposiums respond to calls to find resonant ways to share the embodied/emplaced perspectives and knowing(s) that the somatic practice of dance gives to artist-scholars as they engage with dance, become dance, or witness dancing.
