Aims & Scope

Choreographic Practices explores the expanded field of choreography. The journal emphasizes processes and practices over products, and is focused on work at the borders and edges of what is known, understood or assumed. We publish essays, documentation, blogs in print, visual essays, dialogues, interviews and debate, and welcome submissions throughout the year.

We also offer three different types of peer-review depending on the needs of the author: open peer-review, collaborative peer-review and traditional double-blind peer-review. Full submission guidelines are available at https://www.intellectbooks.com/choreographic-practices#call-for-papers.

Special Issue: ‘Southern Oceanic Choreographic Practices’ Download

Deadline for proposals: 29 September 2022



General Call for Papers 

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Choreographic Practices welcomes submissions throughout the academic year. Contributions are invited to explore choreographic practices from a diverse range of perspectives. We are especially interested in receiving critical/creative practice-led research that is interdisciplinary and experimental in nature.

Topics might include:

Choreographic methodologies and practices
Dance and interdisciplinary
Theatre, screen, sited or social movement practices
Improvisation processes
Dance and documentation
Choreography as social, cultural and/or psychological concern

Choreographic Practices incorporates critical essays, creative documentation, blogs in print, visual essays, dialogues, interviews and debate. We encourage submissions in both conventional and alternative modes of writing, including performative and visual essays.

Submission of an article to the journal will be taken to imply that it presents original, unpublished work not under consideration for publication elsewhere. By submitting a manuscript, the authors agree that the exclusive rights to reproduce and distribute the article have been given to the publishers.

Special Issue Call for Papers

Southern Oceanic Choreographic Practices

Focusing on the localities within the southern Oceanic landscapes of Australia, New Zealand (Aotearoa) and the South Pacific (Moana nui a Kiwa), this issue takes as its theme the work of the dancer and choreographer in the enriched field of diverse dance practices. Circling around questions of agency, authorship and creative methods, we seek to emphasize experimental, culturally distinct, Indigenous, inclusive and queered practices while accurately reflecting the cultural profile of contemporary dance activity in the region. The issue encourages equitable engagement and contributions of writers attuned to First People’s Indigenous praxis, experimental communities and their contributions to the future direction of the art form. Potential topics for submissions include but are not limited to:

  • Intermedial practices
  • Indigenous praxis 
  • Transcultural and intercultural choreographies
  • Activist art
  • Dancer agency and choreographic authorship
  • Compositional practices
  • Community engagement
  • Choreographic practices in regional and remote areas 

The call for proposals is open to those working through choreographic practice, and we welcome submissions that are rich in visual content, or that activate or test the formatting limitations of the journal. We also welcome and support artists/scholars who are interested in developing their submissions through Choreographic Practices’ collaborative peer-review process (see below). 

Please send abstracts or artwork proposals (max. 300 words and optionally max. 5 images) and CV (merged in one PDF file) to choreographicpractices@hushmail.com by 29 September 2022.

Types of Review

Choreographic Practices (CHOR) offers three different types of peer-review processes. It is up to the author to decide which process best suits their needs, but the CHOR editors are happy to help if required. The process chosen will be noted at the top of each article.
 
  1. Open peer-review follows a traditional peer-review process except that the author(s) and the reader-reviewers are openly named. The writing is not anonymised. For this process, the editors ensure there are no potential conflicts of interest, and the reader-reviewers can decide whether or not to be named in the publication.
  2. Collaborative peer-review is where the author(s) and a reviewer-collaborator enter a dialogue to help develop the writing towards publication. CHOR's editorial team will be responsible for choosing an appropriately experienced reviewer-collaborator, and this person can be more or less involved depending on the collaboration. For this process, the reviewer-collaborator can decide whether or not to be named at the time of publication, although we would expect most to agree to this. The extent or depth of the dialogue or collaboration would determine the way in which the reviewer-collaborator is acknowledged. 
  3. Traditional double blind peer-review is where the author(s) and reader-reviewers remain unknown or 'blind' to each other. The writing is anonymised and the author receives anonymous responses from the reviewers via the CHOR editorial team.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
