From the CC editors

CC's current editors Biba Bell and Will Rawls are committed to diverse forms of writing that engage with the ephemeral nature of performance. We will concentrate discussion around dance's encounters-with other artistic practices, theoretical and political frames, and institutions-to provide space and structure to engage, debate, and consider the effects and possibilities for the field. We invite submissions that imaginatively and critically examine the processes and histories of artists and communities in the U.S. and abroad. 

Critical Correspondence is a web-based publication of Movement Research that provides a forum for diverse engagements with artistic practice, research, and the contexts that surround the field of dance. Utilizing the flexibility of a digital platform, Critical Correspondence publishes timely and in-depth content in multiple formats, including interviews, experimental and scholarly writing, podcasts and video projects. Edited by a rotating team of artists, the publication aims to foster discourse and increase the visibility of dance and movement-based forms in larger artistic and cultural conversations.
