About Us

typewriters in a landscape with words floating into the skySomething Other is a website, a series of events, and a collaboration between the writers Mary Paterson, Maddy Costa and Diana Damian Martin.

“Performance cannot be saved, recorded, documented, or otherwise participate in the circulation of representations: once it does so, it becomes something other than performance.”

(Peggy Phelan, Unmarked: The Politics of Performance)

In this space we collect the something other: essays, autobiographies, video, psychogeographies and more, all relating in some way to performance.

Submissions welcome: please see our editorial policy.
