Abstract: Through this article I articulate the interplay between writing and improvisational dancing to describe a methodology for an embodied, sensual and experiential mode of writing/dancing in which the boundaries between these two disciplines are blurred. Through a consideration of this writing practice I argue that, as a form of knowing, it offers an implicit challenge to the normalized economy of academic discourse. Developing out of a ‘practice as research’ project undertaken within The Choreographic Lab (University of Northampton) the article includes extracts of the work ‘Dear Practice…’, in which I, as ‘dancer,’ enter into a series of exchanges in the form of letters with my improvisation ‘practice’
