Choreographic Practices was founded and edited by Jane Bacon and Vida Midgelow (2010-2020). The journal operates from the principle that dance embodies ideas and can be productively enlivened when considered as a mode of critical and creative discourse. The journal provides a platform for sharing choreographic practices, critical inquiry and debate.
Placing an emphasis on processes and practices over products, this journal seeks to engender dynamic relationships between theory and practice, choreographer and scholar, so that these distinctions may be shifted and traversed.
Choreographic Practices aims to encompass a wide range of methodologies and critical perspectives such that interdisciplinary processes in performance can be understood as they intersect with other territories in the arts and beyond (for example, cultural studies, psychology, phenomenology, geography, philosophy and economics). In this way, the journal seeks to open up the nature and scope of dance practice as research and draw together diverse bodies of knowledge and ways of knowing to illuminate an emerging and vibrant research area.
