This is a special issue devoted to the subject of Sounding Corporeality. The first fully dedicated special issue of the journal since 2014 (39.3), it takes as its focus the relationship between sounds and bodies in theatre and performance. As the editors tell us in their editorial, the issue ‘acknowledges and examines the intimate interactions, intersections and interventions of the aesthetic, the social and the political, to explore how corporeality sounds and how sonicity moves.

The issue includes research articles, artist reflections and dialogues that engage experimental performance, dance, choreography, installation, opera, and the dynamic interactions between performance forms and media. Contributors survey practices from the US, Israel, Northern Ireland, Singapore, Italy, the UK, India and Australia.

The Senior Editor's Note and Editorial are free to access. Do also check out the special issue's launch video where Senior Editor Fintan Walsh chats with the issue editors and some contributors.
