Line. Bridge. Body is inviting 3-5-page submissions for a publication on somatic praxis (images included) by December 2nd, 2019


The project was initiated in the summer when more than a dozen writers, performers, and artists, held workshops at Majlis Art Garden.


We are extending the invite to others in the publication phase and would like to hear from you. 

The project focuses, but is not limited to, four areas of exploration: psychosomatic themes, including disability, sound and the listening body, eco-performance, and sensoria. All deal with embodiment, movement, relationality, sense of place, and ecological connection, from a variety of perspectives. Such explorations engage multiple media and are practice oriented. 


Confirmed contributors include Shannon Bell, Miggy Esteban, Mitchell Akiyama, Csenge Kolozsvari, Lo Bil, Teresa Ascencao, Heather Sincavage, DENISPÉ.

You are invited to submit a piece on the mentioned or other themes touching on the subject:


-relational somatics, movement, explorations of space-time, duration, memory, process, the life of lines, experience of place, nomadicity, (im)migration

-embodied senses (i.e. touch), synesthesia, sensoria, sensation, non-linguistic communication, and sense (i.e. felt-sense)

-somatics and identity,

performance art, improvisation and experimentation in the arts (i.e. music, listening, and movement)

-ecological mourning, eco-performance, relationship with nature and/or nonhuman life

-bodies and surface, skin, without organs, technology, augmentation

-bodies as sites of transgression, in revolt, resistance, decolonization of the senses and sensoria

-psychosomatic considerations, trauma, critical disability

-critical and culturally diverse approaches to embodiment


We invite artists to submit work done with a variety of media, including, music, dance, performance art, theatre, film and photography. The submission should be single spaced, Times New Roman, Chicago style, and include a Bibliography within the page count. You may submit entries in English or French.

Your submission will be reviewed by our editorial team consisting of Sanja Dejanovic (Ja), Jonathan Adjemian, Christine Bellerose, and A.T. Kingsmith.

The initial call can be found at


Write to us at  if you have any questions, and to submit your piece.


The editorial team thanks you for your submission! Those successful will be contacted by December 15th or shortly after.
