About the publication

PAJ explores innovative work in theatre, performance art, dance, video, writing, technology, sound, and music, bringing together all live arts in thoughtful cultural dialogue. Issues include critical essays, artists’ writings, interviews, plays, drawings, and notations, with extended coverage of performance, festivals, and books.


Moving Marks explores the intersection of drawing and performance art by reviewing different ideas and approaches to mark making presented at the Draw to Perform 3 Symposium at Crows Nest Gallery, London in July 2016. Curated by Ram Samocha, the theme of this Symposium, collaborations, lead artists to focus and reflect on the relationship between material, artist, body, space and audience.
