Call for Submissions: Performance Reviews

 

PARtake is an e-journal dedicated to exploring the theory and application of performance in practice. Performance-as-Research is, for us, an investigation into the material, epistemological, and ontological fundamentals of all forms of performance, intended or otherwise. We not only welcome writing about your own Performance-as-Research, but also invite authors to describe and analyze the revelations that emerge when witnessing the performances of others. Our Performance Review section features short essays documenting, analyzing, and making an argument about recent performances or festivals of performances. 

 

We are currently accepting submissions for 700-2000 word Performance Reviews for our upcoming Special Themed Issue: Pedagogies of/and Performance-as-Research. For our special issues, we are open to submissions of Performance Reviews both connected with the theme and Performance Reviews connected with our more general mission of explore Performance -as-Research. 

During the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are particularly interested in Performance Reviews that explore innovative performances in times of social distance. These might include performances in digital spaces, physically distanced arrangements, and otherwise unconventional performance modalities that expand the boundaries of liveness. Performance reviews concerning pre-pandemic performances that took place within 6 months of submission are welcome as well.

 

Completed submissions for this issue are due by March 5th, 2021. All manuscripts should be submitted through our online system.
