Writing the Embodied Experience: Ekphrastic and Creative Writing as Audience Research
This paper explores the potential for spectator-authored creative writing as a vehicle to re‑present the experience of watching dance. Examining a research process that worked with creative writers and experienced dance spectators, it describes how the production of ekphrastic writing, that is texts that seek to evoke another non-textual art form, might allow audience members the opportunity to articulate embodied and emotional responses to dance that are often considered beyond discourse and ineffable.
